A mid-wave infrared camera visualizes methane gas leaking from a drilling platform. Methane is a greenhouse gas that is significantly more damaging than carbon dioxide. When it leaks uncontrolled from industrial plants, it can easily escape into the atmosphere. This is seen primarily as an economic loss, but it also contributes to the destruction of the environment. Sensitive high-resolution mid-wave infrared (MWIR) cameras can accurately detect such emissions without placing a direct-measurement gas-detection system in the danger zone. Figure 1. The transmission spectrum of...Read full article
