MID-IR LEDS EMERGE IN IoT SENSING MARKETS
The appetite of the internet-of-things (IoT) for high-volume, inexpensive, low-power optical sensor nodes favor mid-infrared LEDs for many unmet needs in environmental and health sensing. QuiC SLEDs™ (quantum interband cascade superlattice light emitting diodes) bring the wavelengths and performance to make these billion-node applications possible.
The mid-IR, spanning roughly 3-12 µm wavelengths, holds a wealth of molecular fingerprint signatures for LED-based sensing:
- Smart buildings and smart homes need to keep the air fresh for maintaining healthy living and working spaces while reducing energy usage.
- The oil and gas production and distribution infrastructure needs widespread hydrocarbon gas and vapor monitoring.
- Wearable and mobile device makers seek new sensors for consumers to monitor their personal environmental exposure and biomarkers in skin.
