QUANTUM CASCADE LASER:
Block is pleased to introduce the new LaserSense-ML hydrocarbon gas analyzer for mud-logging and the LaserSense-SC for the semiconductor manufacturing industry. 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 a product for OEM customers: the ultra-compact Mini-QCL Quantum Cascade Laser OEM module, featuring 250 cm-1 per module. Multiple modules can be seamlessly integrated together by either the OEM or by Block.
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. The award is part of IARPA's Standoff Illuminator for Measuring Absorbance and Reflectance Infrared Light Signatures (SILMARILS) program.
Block's open path LaserWarn system can detect chemicals in parts-per-billion sensitivities over thousands of square feet. The system can be used to protect personnel against chemical threats and can also be used for industrial leak detection.
