- ABOUT BLOCK
QUANTUM CASCADE LASER:
Block is pleased to introduce the LaserSense-CV Calorific Value, BTU, and Wobbe Index analyzer for the natural gas industry.
The LaserSense-CV provides accurate speciation of C1-C6+ hydrocarbons (including isomers) in seconds, and requires no consumables. Purged NEMA, explosion-proof, and pelican case housing options are available for the analyzer.
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.
