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 […]

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 […]

Lasers versus LEDs – The Debate

The Seventh Sense Blog recently published a blog post on the Sensors Magazine online site (click here for the full article). The unknown author referred to as “MD” professes that “Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are probably the most chronicled electronic components of all time, the ones finding more applications by the minute, and the fastest […]

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 […]
