A photoacoustic spectrometer for the measurement of aerosol absorption spectra, based on the excitation of a pulsed nanosecond Optical Parametrical Oscillator (OPO), will be introduced. This spectrometer is working at ambient pressure and can be used to detect and characterize different classes of aerosols. The spectrometer features a spectral range of 405 nm to 2500 nm and a sensitivity of 2.5•10^{-7} m^{-1} at 550 nm. A full characterization of the system in the visible spectral range is demonstrated and the potential of the system for near IR measurement is discussed. On the example of different kinds of soot particles, the performance of the spectrometer was assessed. As we demonstrate, it is possible to determine a specific optical absorption per particle by a combination of the new spectrometer with an aerosol particle counter.
