Intelligent decision making depends on automated process and information gathered from
sensors. The 2011 study has 717 pages, 136 tables and figures. Mid Infrared (IR) Sensors
are evolving in the context of the development of solid state technology that provides
vast improvements. Improvements in energy density are one of the benefits of energy
harvesting give to traditional rechargeable and solid state batteries and sensors become
much more useful in this context. The ability to locate self-sufficient sensors out in the
field without replacing batteries is a significant market development. Lower cost and size
of the mid IR sensors is another market aspect.
Mid-infrared (MIR) optical chemical sensor technology in the spectral range of 3-12m
is gaining importance in process monitoring, environmental analysis, security/surveillance
applications, and the biomedical field. Design approaches for digitally dominated active
pixel sensors: leveraging Moore’s Law scaling in focal plane readout design. CMOS
technology scaling has provided tremendous power and circuit density benefits for
innumerable applications, focal plane array (FPA) readouts have largely been left behind.
Design and modeling of nanophotonic beam structures as optical NEMS sensors. Silicon
photonic crystal (PhC) waveguide based resonator is designed by introducing a micro-cavity
within the line defect. Silicon photonic crystals form the resonant band gap structure for
Mid IR sensors can measure chemical composition of materials and gas in a manner that
is unmatched by any other technology, for a cost that is increasingly more competitive.
Mid IR is being readied for use beyond military applications to commercial systems,
including wireless network systems.
Advances in QC laser technology and spectrometer hardware are combined with
spectroscopic techniques. Intra pulse spectroscopy and similar techniques provide a major
step change in sensitivity, speed of operation, fingerprinting capability, size and cost.
They offer a major improvement on methods of gas detection.
Recent advances in spectrometer hardware relate to QC gas sensors which exploit recent
technological advances including miniaturized integrated electronic systems, plug and play
interfaces and micro optics. These will progressively replace the unwieldy, fragile and
expensive instrumentation of the past.
The lasing wavelength for QCL’s is determined by the choice of semiconductor material
as with conventional lasers. By adjusting the physical thickness of the semiconductor
layers new functionality is achieved. This removes the material barriers associated with
conventional semiconductor laser technology. It opens the possibility of near-infrared
through to THz spectral coverage.
An infrared spectroscopic laser source has no need for cryogenic cooling, provides
high output powers, has large spectral coverage, provides excellent spectral quality, and
has good tuneability.
The removal of the noise floor, without the need of complex fringe removal techniques
or expensive optical isolators, enables the laboratory performance of this technology to
be transferred to real world applications.
Mid-infrared (IR) laser sensors are able to measure change in device condition,
chemistry, or temperature. The ability to measure change remotely, at an affordable price,
is part of the emerging smarter planet initiative based on smart sensors. The coincident
elaboration of the Internet availability leverages wireless devices. Worldwide demand is
creating needs for remote connectivity to sensing devices.
Infrared is a portion of the electro-magnetic spectrum that is not visible by the
human eye because its wavelength is too long. Unlike visible light, infrared radiation (or
heat) is emitted directly by all objects above absolute zero in temperature. The mid IR
spectrum goes from 3-12 m.
Homeland security, military communications, infrared countermeasures, chemical warfare
agent detection, explosives detection, medical diagnostics, industrial process controls,
remote gas leak detection, pollution monitoring, and real-time combustion controls are
uses for the mid IR sensors. Military applications account for a significant portion of
mid IR sensor markets in the first three quarters of 2011. The remaining part of revenue
came from CO2 building sensors and units for a number of different markets. Markets are
anticipated to grow as costs decrease from $5000 per unit to $200 and even to $1 or less
per unit for some new technology.
Prices will decline on average. The decrease in size of units from bench size devices
to portable units makes them more useful across the board in every industry.
Mid Infrared (IR) sensors markets at $509 million market worldwide in 2011 is
anticipated to increase tenfold to $5 billion by 2018. This strong growth is anticipated
to come as units are less expensive and more effective in the same amount of space.
Wireless sensor networks are useful almost everywhere, creating the opportunity to
implement controls and mange every aspect of human activity in ways that have not even
been imagined hitherto.
