A novel method of Lorentz distribution solution (LDS) from overlapped absorbance profile in time domain (incomplete absorbance profile in frequency domain) based on the direct absorption spectroscopy method (DAS) was experimentally demonstrated. It utilized the ratio of the integral in a certain interval on the lower horizontal axis of the Lorentzian profile to the integral in the entire interval on the horizontal axis has a certain relationship and can be expressed by a formula. This method effectively solves the difficulties of extracting gas concentration from incomplete absorbance profile. Formulation and detection procedure were presented, experiments were carried out to prove the method on the extraction of gas concentration from different overlapped absorbance profile and different concentration. Compared with the conventional DAS (C-DAS), the maximum relative errors on the concentration extraction are minimized from 25.55% to 2.64% at different concentration and absorbance profile. Meanwhile, the experimental results show that the obtained gas concentration by LDS presents a good linear relationship while those measured by C-DAS are significantly different.
