The objectives of the study were: (a) to design, construct, and deliver a prototype atomic line molecular spectrometer (ALMS) benzene monitor and (b) to locate matches of atomic lines and sharp molecular absorption features in other toxic organic compounds for possible use in ALMS or TALMS techniques. ALMS and TALMS are newly developed, high resolution molecular absorption techniques which are used in the vacuum untraviolet and ultraviolet regions of the optical spectrum to detect organic molecules in the gas phase. The dual beam prototype ALMS instrument was designed, constructed, tested and delivered to the Environmental Monitoring Systems Laboratory, U.S. EPA, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, in December, 1984. It was designed for monitoring benzene and other organic compounds with the 184.9 and 253.7 nm mercury lines.
