MID InfraRed micro spectrometer
A compact optical gas sensor working in the MID-infrared (3µm to 12µm) by assembling a multi-wavelength quantum cascade laser (QCL) source with a small photo-acoustic cell (~ few cm3). The photo-acoustic detection is based on the generation of an acoustic wave induced by the absorption of a laser pulse.
