CO2 sensors video demo - mid-IR LEDs

Watch Mark Demonstrate Our CO2 Mid-IR LED Sensor

We captured the cool video demonstration of our mid-IR LED – QuiC SLED™ again! If you haven’t seen it around social media, make sure you see it here!

Watch our chief scientist, Mark Miller PhD, demonstrate the carbon dioxide (CO2) sensing abilities of our QuiC SLED™ tuned to 4.25 µm. This product can also be tuned to any of the mid-IR wavelengths between 3-12 µm to match up with various molecular fingerprints for gas sensing.

Applications include environmental, health and other IoT sensing, illumination and communication applications.

Mid-IR LEDs to compete with lasers?

Emerging Mid-IR LEDs are competing with lasers in health & environmental sensing, according to Dr. Mark Miller, as featured in the latest edition of Laser Focus World magazine.

LEDs emerge in environmental and health sensing markets

The voracious appetite of the internet-of-things for high-volume, inexpensive optical sensor nodes favors mid-infrared LEDs over lasers for many unmet environmental and health sensing needs. Quantum interband cascade superlattice light emitting diodes (QuiC SLEDs) bring the wavelengths and performance to make these billion-node applications possible.

In this article, there is a complete review of the evolution of mid-IR LEDs, quantum engineering, and a comparison of the QuiC SLED™ to other alloy LEDs, thermal heat sources, and laser diodes.

APPLICATIONS FOR MID-IR LEDS

Some of the applications for this technology include monitoring natural gases, automobile exhaust and clean air cabins, smart building, cities and devices, health monitoring, environmental sensing, and so much more.

Climate change, global warming, and LEDs

Can mid-infrared LEDs impact global warming through Internet of Things  sensing for methane & CO2? We think so!

After reviewing this article written by Beatrice Gitau of the Christian Science Monitor about methane gas leaking from the ocean floor, we got to thinking “What if our mid-infrared LEDs, or QuiC SLEDs as we call them, could impact global warming by early detection of methane and carbon dioxide gases by just a few percent? Would that matter?”

Here is a quote from the article that I found interesting:

In 2013, methane accounted for about 10 percent of all US greenhouse gas emissions from human activities according to EPA. Although there’s much less methane in the atmosphere, the gas is 23 times more potent than carbon dioxide in trapping heat in the atmosphere.

We look forward to doing our part in global warming and climate change.

You are welcome.
