New PIC App Note For Gas Sensing
A new PDF application note from PICs4all, a coordination and support effort of EPIC and the EU Horizon 2020 program, describes how photonics integration can aid gas sensing, and in particular tunable laser diode absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS). The new approach combines all elements of a TDLAS gas sensor on a single PIC, which is then coupled to fiber-optic sensors such as hollow-core fibers and fiber-coupled gas cells to create a complete sensor.

The PICs4All (Photonic Integrated Circuits Accessible to Everyone) initiative is designed to publicize photonic integrated circuit (PIC) technology and ways to obtain access to advanced fabrication facilities for PICs. (For more information: http://pics4all.jeppix.eu.)
