New publication on Analytical Chemistry Journal

The PolySense team has just published a new article on Analytical Chemistry journal reporting on a  statistical tool based on partial least squares regression (PLSR) able to retrieve single-component concentrations in a multiple-gas mixture characterized by spectrally overlapping absorption features exploiting QEPAS spectroscopy. The following link provide access to the article. http://polysense.poliba.it/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/121_acs.analchem.PLS_2020.pdf  

New Publication on Fuel – Elsevier

The PolySense team has just published  a new article on Fuel – Elsevier reporting  on the realization of a shoe-box sized quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy system capable of: i) selective detection of methane and ethane in the parts-per-billion range, and propane in the parts-per-million range, by employing a single interband cascade laser ; ii) selective detection Leggi di piùNew Publication on Fuel – Elsevier[…]

New Publication on Applied Science

The PolySense team has just published  a new article on Applied Science reporting  on a study of the front-end electronics for quartz tuning forks (QTFs) employed as optoacoustic transducers in quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy (QEPAS) sensing. We demonstrated that the fully di erential voltage amplifier allows for a nearly doubled SNR with respect to the typically used single-ended Leggi di piùNew Publication on Applied Science[…]

New Publication on Applied Science

The PolySense team has just published  a new article on Applied Science reporting on the realization of a quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy (QEPAS)-based ethane gas sensor operating in the near-IR  and  employing a pigtailed laser diode emitting at ~1684 nm as the exciting light source.  The minimum ethane concentration detectable using a 100 ms lock-in integration time achieving Leggi di piùNew Publication on Applied Science[…]

New Publication on Applied Physics Letters

The PolySense team has just published  a new article on Applied Physics Letters reporting on an optical gas sensing technique based on in-plane quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy (IP-QEPAS).  IP-QEPAS sensor results in a signal more than 40 times higher than that measured with the standard in-plane QEPAS configuration, confirming the potentiality of this approach.
