All news

The PULSe (Princeton University Laser Sensing) group conducts research which is primarily focused on the development of mid-infrared laser spectroscopic instrumentation for applications in trace gas detection and chemical sensing. The target applications range from atmospheric chemistry, environmental monitoring and bio-medical research, to industrial emissions and process control.


Our current research activities include:

* Development of ultra-sensitive mid-IR laser spectroscopic systems for remote or in-situ, non-invasive, rapid chemical analysis.

* Development of widely tunable external cavity quantum cascade lasers (EC-QCLs) for high resolution molecular spectroscopic application

* Development of distributed spectroscopic trace-gas sensor networks
