We report on the development of a low-cost and compact instrument for quantifying atmospheric NO(2) concentrations by detecting NO(2) fluorescence using a commercial light-emitting diode around 435 nm as a fluorescence excitation light source. The minimum detectable limit of the NO(2) instrument developed has been estimated to be 9.8 parts per billion of volume mixing ratio (ppbv) in a 60 s integration time and with a signal-to-noise ratio of 2.
