Earth's environmental conditions are changing. Continuous real-time monitoring of greenhouse gases and other atmospheric pollutants is a key to understanding how people are affecting the environment.
Single- and multi-species molecular analyzers can satisfy many of the diverse requirements facing the environmental monitoring community. Gas analyzers for monitoring ambient air quality, measuring stack emissions, or monitoring greenhouse gases for atmospheric research represent only a few significant applications in this area. Instruments that can detect contaminants in our water supply also fill a critical need for understanding how our environment is changing. Wireless sensor networks now being researched can provide aggregated data streams in real time, alerting a population to the current environmental conditions in a city, a region, or the entire world.
Daylight Solutions’ core technology platforms are ideally suited to address the needs of the environmental monitoring community. By utilizing the benefits of our mid-infrared External Cavity Quantum Cascade Laser (ECqcL™) technology, “fingerprint” analysis techniques can be applied to address a diverse set of requirements. ECqcL™-based sensors have very high sensitivities while simultaneously maintaining excellent selectivity for target molecules even in complex, rapidly changing backgrounds. This all-solid-state technology is configured to be very small and compact, with low power consumption for battery operation. This enables portable handheld sensor products such as those envisioned for ubiquitous monitoring networks.
Daylight Solutions develops OEM “sensor engines” as well as complete sensor systems based on mid-infrared technology. Our sensors consist of three main subsystems: a mid-infrared laser source, a low noise detector, and a gas-handling apparatus designed for a specific application. Because our technology includes both broadly tunable and fixed wavelength laser sources, we can detect a wide range of molecules with excellent sensitivity and accuracy. Our sensor engines allow our customers to achieve “Best of Breed” status in their respective markets. Because we cover the entire spectrum from 3.2 to 14 µm, we can detect nearly every molecule of interest to environmental monitoring.
