In 2005, Daylight Solutions pioneered the commercialization of quantum cascade lasers (QCL) by combining QC gain media with our patented External Cavity QCL™ technology. The result was a robust, broadly tunable or fixed wavelength mid-infrared laser source. We earned a leadership role by bringing together experts from related disciplines and integrating technologies through applied research and development while maintaining a focus on scalable manufacturability. We are now the world leader in QCL-based molecular detection and imaging systems.
Our patented designs and advanced manufacturing processes ensure robustness and reliability, with 1,000 to 10,000 hours of real-time operation. We leverage our core technologies to deliver commercial- and military-grade system-level solutions for these applications and others:
DRS Daylight Solutions customers enjoy a competitive advantage in their respective markets because of our futureproof technology and the collaborative, problem-solving partnerships we establish with them.
