Daylight Solutions introduces widely tunable 3.2 micron laser at Pittcon2012


Mar 12, 2012 – New Laser System Targets Commercial Markets for Measuring Mixed Hydrocarbons

Mar 12, 2012 Orlando, FL – Daylight Solutions, the leading global provider of Mid IR detection and imaging solutions, announced today at the PITTCON Conference and Exposition the introduction of the new TLS-41032 external cavity laser. The TLS-41032 offers over 200 cm-1 of tunability with wavelength coverage in the 3.25 μm (3,080 cm-1) region of the mid-infrared spectrum. Customers will be able to embed this laser into a range of sensor products targeted at industrial monitoring, process control, Process Analytical Technology (PAT), environmental and safety applications.

The new product from Daylight Solutions will provide increased performance in spectral brightness, tuning range and power at this critical wavelength. The center wavelength matches the fundamental C-H stretching vibrational mode, allowing it to be used to measure most hydrocarbons. The broad tuning range inherent in external cavity technology enables the successful analysis of multi-component samples where blended absorption features or broad backgrounds can produce ambiguous results when using Distributed Feedback (DFB) devices with limited tuning ranges.

“This product introduction will enable new instruments in the petrochemical and environmental industries to detect and discriminate a wide range of molecules based on their unique spectral signatures at these wavelengths” says Sr. Director of Commercial Products, Dr. Bob Shine.
“Adding new wavelengths and increased laser performance targeted at key industrial applications is part of Daylight Solutions’ core strategy to bring mid-infrared solutions to a range of commercial markets,” adds CEO & CTO Dr. Tim Day.
