The multiSense product consists of a multi-gas analysis module, the size of a matchbox, allowing very low detection levels (10 ppb) and this, at an unprecedented cost. Multisense brings together, within it, 2 patented technological bricks resulting from several years of development which have enabled it to reach industrial maturity: infrared QCL lasers and a Photoacoustic cell. Quantum Cascade Lasers are one of the only technologies to produce an emission in the mid infrared (3µm-12µm) at room temperature and directly. This wavelength range has the advantage of being the most significant for the analysis of gas molecules: most polluting and sought-after gases absorb radiation in this range. Coupled with these lasers, the second technological brick, photoacoustics, ensures the detection of the spectral signature of the gas. The multiSense product thus enables manufacturers, manufacturers of analyzers, to meet the constraints of their customers, with emission thresholds ever lower and difficult to reach, increasingly sophisticated test situations, and increasingly accepted costs. more reduced. The main markets of muliSense address the environmental issue: Measurement of polluting emissions from industries, Measurement of engine emissions. These markets are accessible thanks to the current product equipped with its electronics. Developments in terms of cost and production volume, thanks to the use of semiconductors, allow us to consider reaching mass markets such as measurement on each vehicle and the issue of indoor air quality. .
mirSense also manufactures and markets quantum cascade laser systems for spectroscopy or defense type applications.
