Next generation Mid IR Sensors are leveraging new technology. Worldwide mid IR sensor
markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the Internet of things creates demand
for sensors.

Mid IR sensors can measure chemical composition of materials and gas. The efficiency
is unmatched by any other technology, cost is increasingly competitive. Mid IR is
extending use beyond military applications to commercial systems, including the Internet
of things where sensors become part of network systems. Mid-IR QCL systems have achieved
price performance levels that are increasingly attractive. Vendors bring sensing
capabilities to a broad range of applications, including: spectroscopic and bio-medical
imaging; materials characterization; standoff explosive detection; microscopy; and
non-destructive testing. Spectroscopy and imaging measurements are easier, faster and more
cost-effective leveraging advances in Mid IR sensing

Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) technology is very promising. Mid-infrared sensors and
imaging applications depend on quantum cascade laser (QCL) technology. Daylight Solutions
quantum cascade laser (QCL) technology has been delivered to more systems for more
customers in more applications than all other QCL-based solutions combined. 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.

Advances exploit recent technological advances including miniaturized integrated
electronic systems, plug and play interfaces and micro optics. These will progressively
replace unwieldy, fragile and expensive instrumentation. The lasing wavelength for QCL’s
is determined by the choice of semiconductor material. By adjusting the physical thickness
of the semiconductor layers new functionality is achieved. This removes the material
barriers associated with conventional semiconductor laser technology.

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. Homeland security, military communications, infrared countermeasures
, chemical warfare agent detection, explosives detection, medical diagnostics, imaging and
industrial process controls, fire detection and remote gas leak detection, pollution
monitoring, and real-time combustion controls are uses for the mid IR sensors.
