We showed that the output of an autocorrelation with a gas spectrum could be triple-correlated to reduce the effects of Gaussian noise. Such processing is directly applicable to a correlation spectrometer but could be applied to other designs. In spite of the added processing, triple-correlating the output of a spectrometer allowed us to generally increase the SNR by over a factor of ten. Even with as few as two measurements good results were obtained.
