Firefly-IR is an innovative mid-infrared (mid-IR) laser source that provides an unmatched blend of broad wavelength coverage (~2.5-4.5 µm), high average power (>400 mW at 350 kHz), peak powers >100 W, hands-free operation and shoebox size.

These features provide users with new capabilities for a host of molecular spectroscopy, sensing and imaging applications. Firefly-IR’s wide tunability means users can access the absorption features of many different molecular species with a single unit. In addition, its high output power -- in a near diffraction-limited beam -- affords users higher detection sensitivity, and greater stand-off distances in remote sensing/ imaging applications.

Firefly’s high pulse-repetition rate also provides rapid data acquisition, and powerful video-rate imaging capability. Also, Firefly-IR’s novel intracavity OPO design, with integrated pump laser, allows for an extremely rugged and compact optical head, ideally suited to OEM, space-constrained or field use.

Firefly-IR’s unique characteristics make it highly appealing for a variety of applications, including: the spectroscopy and detection of greenhouse gases and hydrocarbons; engine emissions reduction; oil exploration; medical diagnostics (such as ppm breath monitoring); mid-IR spectroscopy; lidar; eye-safe illumination and infrared countermeasures.

Customization of Firefly-IR’s optical performance, software interface and level of automation -- including the addition of Instrument Control by Ethernet (ICE) functionality -- is also available.

GLOSSARY
lidar
An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
remote sensing
Technique that utilizes electromagnetic energy to detect and quantify information about an object that is not in contact with the sensing apparatus.
