About This Webinar
To face the climate and air pollution challenges of today and tomorrow, more and better atmospheric data is required. Optical techniques operating in the mid-infrared (MIR) range, where most atmospheric species exhibit fundamental absorption bands, are powerful gas-sensing tools with which to achieve data goals. Jerome Thiebaud discusses how the future of atmospheric monitoring lies in the commoditization of emerging photonics technologies. He gives a short review of the developments over the last several decades — from the first tunable diode laser absorption spectrometers to current commercial trace gas analyzers. Thiebaud presents the state of the art for both fixed and mobile ultrasensitive analyzers and extrapolates current trends that are leading to a future in which trace gas analyzers have become ubiquitous.
