5 © TDL Sensors Ltd µm Laser diodes, VCSELs 3-5 µm 4.2->12 µm DFGs QCLs Tunable Laser Gas Monitoring We use the IR spectral region for gas measurements Tunable lasers available within this region

6 © TDL Sensors Ltd 2012 Tunable Laser Gas Monitoring NIR Mid-IR Each gas absorbs light in a characteristic way. Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Nitric Oxide (NO) Ammonia (NH3) Carbon Monoxide (CO) Methane (CH4) Water (H2O) This means that each gas has a unique spectrum or fingerprint.
