Quantum Cascade Laser Sensor

Physical Sciences Inc. has developed a stand-alone, fully automated sensor for ultra-sensitive detection of Nitric Oxide (NO). The sensor uses room-temperature Distributed FeedBack Quantum Cascade Laser (DFB-QCL) and Balanced Ratiometric Detection (BRD) technology to achieve a detection sensitivity at ambient temperature and pressure of 10 ppb-m. Higher sensitivity may be achieved at lower pressure or with longer absorption pathlengths. The QC laser is mounted in a custom-fabricated housing, complete with thermo-electric cooler, beam-shaping optics, and pulsed current supply. The sensor includes all optical components necessary to setup absorption measurements in a typical laboratory environment.
