eXtended Tuning Laser

“eXtended Tuning Laser”QC-XT Alpes Lasers offers two types of extended tuning devices, both of which allow rapid tuning at fixed temperature in a wider range than standard DFB lasers. The QC-ET allows fully continuous tuning over 0.4% of the central wavelength, while the QC-XT described here allows piece-wise continuous tuning over 2% of the central wavelength (40 cm-1 at […]

SOMMA

SOMMA project Sensor Optical Multi-purpose Mid-IR Applications This project has the scope to develop a multipurpose sensing platform based on broadly tunable laser sources QCL-XT developed by Alpes in the Mid-IR range.    These sensors will initially target two main applications within the project consortium, i.e. continuous monitoring of CF4 emissions in presence of CH4 […]

PETRA

PETRA project PETRochemical Analyzer The project seeks to develop a prototype instrument for optical on-line analysis in petrochemical process streams. It will quantify percent-level composition of hydrocarbon mixtures and detect trace-level (parts-per-million) contaminants in an ethylene matrix. Such a product will replace high-maintenance chromatographs.   The result of the project is the development of laser […]
