Customers using the Laser Spectroscopy facility
We primarily use quantum cascade lasers to address the challenge of real time sensitive detection of trace molecular concentrations. Our work in remote sensing and in-situ sensing are covered on the
Spectroscopy page. Our current research and development effort covers the following applications:
We collaborate with academia and industries within the UK and internationally.
In collaboration with the University of Leicester and Edinburgh, the group is developing a ground based remote sensing facility for high resolution solar occultation spectroscopy of the atmosphere. The facility intends to seek accreditation to become part of the international Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON) and potentially the international Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC). This development is supported by the NERC National Centre for Earth Observation.
