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.

mid-ir leds can help pollution

You don’t make money sitting in traffic

Technology innovations advance at breakneck speed all around us, with widgets and chips for every device on the planet becoming nearly obsolete shortly after going to market. So it is tempting to want to bypass the technology Autobahn and stay on roads you are most familiar with despite the congestion. But as Wayne Huizenga, founder of three Fortune 500 companies, and six NYSE listed companies reminds us, “you don’t make money sitting in traffic.”

mid-ir leds can help pollution

Terahertz Device Corporation is the leader in Mid-infrared LED advancements and will help you avoid all the “traffic delays” to grow your business successfully. Our QuiC SLED™ (quantum cascade superlattice LEDs) enable and enhance your applications in chemical and gas sensing, thermal imaging, night vision, spectroscopy, biophotonics, medical sensing, and communications.

Is climate change in your mission? Are you in global warming regulation and compliance?

Do you want to save money with more efficient CO2 monitoring in smart building and smart home applications?

Are you in oil and gas production, manufacturing, and distribution with needs in widespread methane and other compound sensing?

Would you like to be the first in the wearable device markets to monitor blood glucose and other biomarkers in skin?

With so many applications, our technology can get you out of traffic and to the next level; because as Wayne Huizenga also shares: “Some people dream of success, while other people get up every morning and make it happen.”
