New Publication on Optics Letters

The PolySense team has just published  a new article on Optics Letters reporting on a side-excitation light-induced thermoelastic spectroscopy (SE-LITES) technique for trace gas detection. The mechanical stress distribution on the QTF surface was analyzed to identify the optimum thermoelastic excitation approach. A signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) improvement of more than one order of magnitude was Leggi di piùNew Publication on Optics Letters[…]

New Publication on Photoacoustics Journal

The PolySense team has just published  a new article on Photoacoustics Journal Elsevier (IF 9.94)  reporting on the development of a gas sensor based on light-induced thermo-elastic spectroscopy (LITES) capable to detect methane (C1) and ethane (C2) in a wide concentration range, from percent down to part-per-billion (ppb). Minimum detection limits of ∼650 ppb and Leggi di piùNew Publication on Photoacoustics Journal[…]

New Publication on Photoacoustics Journal

The PolySense team has just published  a new article on Photoacoustics Journal Elsevier (IF 9.94)  reporting on the development of a highly sensitive hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas sensor exploiting the doubly resonant photoacoustic spectroscopy technique and using a near-infrared laser emitting at 1578.128 nm. We achieved a minimum detection limit of 10 part per billion Leggi di piùNew Publication on Photoacoustics Journal[…]

New Publication on Photoacoustics Journal

The PolySense team has just published  a new article on Photoacoustics Journal Elsevier (IF 9.94)  reporting on a on a Near-IR quartz-enhanced photoacoustic sensor (QEPAS) for H2S leaks detection in matrixes containing up to 1 % of methane (CH4). An investigation of the influence of CH4 on H2S relaxation and photoacoustic generation was proposed in this Leggi di piùNew Publication on Photoacoustics Journal[…]

New Publication on Optics Express

The PolySense team has just published  a new article on Optics Express reporting on incubation effect on the laser ablation threshold of quartz, after multi-shot irradiation with femtosecond pulses. A strong decrease of the multi-pulse ablation threshold with the number of pulses was found due to incubation. Moreover, the influence of the repetition rate was Leggi di piùNew Publication on Optics Express[…]
