- ABOUT BLOCK
QUANTUM CASCADE LASER:
Block is pleased to introduce the LaserSense-ML hydrocarbon gas analyzer for mud-logging. The LaserSense family can be used in C1-C5 gas detection, process monitoring, and endpoint detection applications. The LaserSense features a configurable dynamic range and LOD options with customizable gas cell lengths based on requirements.
Block also offers the widely tunable LaserTune quantum cascade laser source, featuring a gap-free tuning range of 5.4-12.8 microns. The LaserTune is configurable with up to 4 internal laser modules.
Block has been awarded a contract from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) to develop a system that can detect trace quantities of chemicals at standoff distances.
Under this contract, Block will develop a new class of widely tunable, high-pulse energy Quantum Cascade Lasers and also next-generation detection algorithms to detect and identify hundreds of chemicals on a wide range of surfaces.
