A new type of multiple-reflection optical cell is presented. One of the main advantages of this type of cell is that it can be made of standard mirrors without particular tolerance while allowing a great number of reflections and thus a large optical path, only limited by the reflection coefficient of the mirrors. The configuration is simple, compact, stable, and cheap. This cell consists of three mirrors as in a White cell but its principle is different. It behaves as a multiplier of a Herriott cell from which it inherits the opto-mechanical stability qualities. The Herriott cell and the White cell are two particular cases of this type of cell. As examples, a demonstrator and an absorption cell contained in a volume of 5 l are presented. The first device is usable with a laser in visible light. The second device is usable with an infrared laser diode for the detection of atmospheric trace species.
