Infrared sensing technology developments from October 2018 – summarised

Welcome to part 2 of our regular blog series, breaking down the key news events from the past month. Here we outline the key stories from trade news publications and academic journals that have caught our eye. This month we look at how IR sensors are being used to eliminate the production of greenhouse gases; to advance biofuel technologies and their analysis; to evaluate the effect of a root canal on the rest of your [...]

The rise of biofuels and the resulting need for IR spectroscopy analysis

Ten years ago, biofuels were regarded as ideal low-carbon replacements for the liquid fossil fuels that power most of the world’s transport systems. But since then, concerns have grown that first-generation biofuels, which were made from food crops, were not as green as hoped. Indeed, when all factors relating to their production were considered, several sources (notably biofuels from palm oil, soybean and rapeseed) were found to be more polluting than crude oil and in [...]

Infrared sensing technology developments from September 2018 – summarised

1) Graphene is a potential substrate for next generation mid-IR sensors A paper in Nature Materials earlier this month has published research into the use of graphene as a substrate for mid-IR sensors. The work has been published by Yale University and Barcelona’s Institute of Photonics Sensors, who have created a graphene-based sensor operating at 12.2 µm and consists of arrays of plasmonic resonators. Measuring just 5 µm by 5 µm, the devices have shown [...]
