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.
