About This Webinar
First realized in 1994 by Bell Labs, quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) enable rapid advancements in academic, industrial, and defense applications. QCLs are now available in a diverse range of commercial systems from high-power fixed wavelength sources to narrow-linewidth and rapidly, broadly tunable lasers. QCLs have now also been adopted in novel QCL instrumentation providing unique capabilities for liquid/gas analysis and chemical imaging microscopy.

Koren details the latest advancements in life sciences and materials sciences research enabled by today’s solutions. He will cover the operating principles of quantum cascade lasers, the fundamentals of infrared vibrational spectroscopy, the advantages of QCLs in applications, novel research from 2021, and the next-generation applications and technology.
