Author Affiliations +
We report on the performance of new quartz tuning fork (QTF) designs optimized for quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy (QEPAS). We investigated the impact on resonance properties of prong geometries differing from the standard rectangular one. We proposed a QTF with T-shaped prongs and a QTF with prongs having rectangular grooves carved on the surface. QTFs were implemented in a QEPAS sensor and performances were compared in terms of signalto-noise ratio (SNR). Then, QTFs were acoustically coupled with single- and dual-tube micro-resonator systems. A record x60 SNR enhancement factor with respect to the bare QTF was achieved with QTF having T-shaped prongs.
