MIRDIAL

Mid-infrared differential absorption LIDAR

Our goal...

is to realize a compact and cost-effective DIAL system with the capability of performing real-time measurements of industrial and urban greenhouse gas emissions.

Our solution...

is a highly sensitive differential absorption LIDAR system operating in the mid-infrared spectral region. To achieve high gaseous specificty we use a transmitter of widely tunable mid-infrared laser light in combination with a  low-noise and very sensitive up-conversion-based nonlinear detector. 

The MIRDIAL project...

is a EUREKA-funded project with a consortium consisting of Danish Fundamental Metrology A/S (Denmark), HC Photonics (Taiwan), NLIR ApS (Denmark), and Cimel Electronique (France).
