Components for optical gas analysis from HAMAMATSU Photonics

Possible applications of gas analysis in medicine include the early detection and diagnosis of diseases by analyzing the breathing air. Hamamatsu offers a wide range of light sources and detectors for optical gas measurement with high-speed response and high precision.

Gas detection through optical absorption is generally approached by using infrared (IR) light or ultraviolet (UV) light. Thanks to their unique absorption wavelengths, the density of gases can be measured easily through molecular absorption. The absorption of the vibrating gas molecules increases particularly in the infrared region, making it ideal for measuring various gases.
After selecting the suitable device, according to the targeted absorption gas and its surrounding environment, the optical method is by far the most optimal for high-speed response, high-accuracy, and long life gas measurement.
As an expert in photonics technology and in the creation of optical devices, Hamamatsu Photonics presents you a wide-range of light sources and detectors perfectly suited for the measurement of gas.
