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.

Smart City

Mid-IR LEDs and what we learned at Sensors

Sensors Expo 2017 was a great event, as expected, and we connected with some great people. We were pleasantly surprised with the interest in, and enthusiasm for, mid-IR LED sensors. The prominent market demands that stood out for us included a few surprises.

Top areas of interest at the conference:

Automobile sensing – clean air cabins is a hot topic and the car industry is moving faster than we have ever experienced to install sensors for CO2, VOCs and more. What a refreshing change!

Smart Cities – San Jose has been on board for a bit but many other urban areas around Smart Citythe globe are using IoT technology and, more specifically, gas sensing technology on lamp posts to detect carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, ground level ozone, sulfur dioxide, and gas leaks.

Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Buildings – smart HVAC can sense CO2, VOCs and other gases to save money and keep people thinking & functioning better. It’s kind of a big deal.

Wearables – between smart watches, smart phones, smart suits, and other devices, health sensing seems to be on the fast track, sensing everything from your heart rate to glucose to ethanol.

Robots – need we say more?!?

And guess what?

Our own patented QuiC SLED technology can be fine tuned at various mid-IR wavelengths to sense all of these and more!

Funny CO2 Sensing Story

Our CO2 sensing demonstration seemed to malfunction a bit, or so we thought, at the end of the first day of the expo. The next morning, when the demonstration oscilloscope peaked better than before, we realized that the levels of CO2 in the exhibition hall were impacting our ability to run our own demonstration…. No wonder everyone was dragging by the end of the day!
