One single semiconductor distributed-feedback (DFB) laser is used to demonstrate the possibility of simultaneous measurements of CO and CO 2 at elevated temperatures. Wavelength modulation spectroscopy with second-harmonic detection is used to improve the detection sensitivity and accuracy. The concentrations of CO and CO 2 are determined from the WMS-1-normalized absorption-based WMS-2f signal peak heights of a proper line pair of CO and CO 2 near 6357.814 cm -1 and 6357.312 cm -1, which are selected using some line-selection criterions for the target temperature range of 300-1000 K. The CO and CO 2 concentrations measurements are within 2.86% and 2.69% of the expected values over the tested temperature range 300-1000 K. The minimum detectable concentrations of CO and CO 2 at 1000 K are 250 ppm m and 280 ppm m respectively. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
