Environmental Monitoring with Ultrafast Lasers

Environmental Monitoring with Lasers

Environmental Monitoring with lasers – EPIC Online Technology Meeting

Prevention of an unplanned hydrocarbon release (HCR) is an asset integrity challenge with global implications to the environment. Deploying ultrafast lasers, to detect greenhouse gases, is widely recognised by the photonics community and the potential of these light sources will be explored in an Environmental Monitoring webinar hosted by EPIC.

As proud members of EPIC, Chromacity shared their experience of using FTIR Spectroscopy to detect and distinguish between multiple gases. Senior R&D Engineer, Dr Kerr Johnson, discussed how light from Chromacity’s optical parametric oscillator (OPO) was coupled into a scanning Michelson interferometer to simultaneously quantify multiple hydrocarbon gases in real-time.
