In order to improve the initial and the response times of the Laser Dew-Point Hygrometer (LDH), the measurement simulation was developed on the basis of the loop computation of the surface temperature of a gold plate for dew depostition, the quantity of deposited dew and the intensity of scattered light from the surface of the plate at time interval of 5 sec during measurement. A more detailed relationship between the surface temperature of the plate and the cooling current, and the time constant of the integrator in the control circuit of the LDH were introduced in the simulation program as a function of atmospheric temperature. The simulation was more close to the actual measurement by the LDH. The simulation results indicated the possibility of improving both the times of teh LDH by the increase of the sensitivity of dew and that of the mass transfer coefficient of dew deposited on the plate surface. It was concluded that the initial and the response times could be improved to below 100sec and 120 sec, respectively in the dew-point range at room temperature, that are almost half of the those times of the original LDH.
