Single channel pyroelectric detector for NDIR spectroscopy

Single channel pyroelectric detector for NDIR spectroscopy
Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) spectroscopy is by far the most commonly used gas detection method. Infra-red radiation generated by a broad band emitter is passed through the gas which is contained in a measurement cell to a sensor. The detector uses an IR filter to measure the absorption strength of the target gas.

Non-dispersive infrared spectroscopy for gas monitoring

Non-dispersive infrared spectroscopy for gas monitoring
The ongoing technical advancements in the field of respiratory gas monitoring has seen the use of sensors that measure the amount of CO2, N2O, O2 and the five potent inhaled anaesthetic agents increase dramatically in operating rooms throughout the world. These gas sensors can alert the anaesthetist to several potentially adverse conditions such as inadvertent overdose.

Optical modulators for distributed fibre sensors

Optical modulators for distributed fibre sensors
It has been announced that LASER COMPONENTS offers optical modulators (MXER-LN) in the range of 1,530 to 1,625nm dedicated to fibre sensing applications. Such applications require a very high extinction ratio as it is a key parameter. LASER COMPONENTS’ partner iXblue has developed these optical modulators based on Mach-Zehnder with an extinction ratio of > 40dB and beyond.

NDIR spectroscopy: differential pyroelectric detectors

NDIR spectroscopy: differential pyroelectric detectors
Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) spectroscopy is by far the most common gas detection method used today. Infra-red radiation generated by a broad band emitter is passed through the gas which is contained in a measurement cell. The advantage of NDIR comes from the strength of absorption in the mid IR compared to methods based on near infra-red spectroscopy. The strong absorption allows relatively low concentrations of gas to be detected with small path lengths and inexpensive components.
