Block sells its LaserTune quantum cascade laser source to universities, research labs, and scientific institutions around the world. The laser allows for gap-free tuning across a 5.4 to 12.8 µm range, and can be configured for shorter wavelength ranges if desired.
The LaserTune is used in a wide variety of biochemical, optical engineering, materials analysis, and other research applications — including in-vivo alcohol detection, biological lung tissue analysis, and study of exhaled acetone in diabetes. For a list of research studies that were designed around the Lasertune, please visit our research papers page.
Block's MiniQCL laser modules are also used by manufacturers of R&D instruments, including chemical analysis systems and infrared microscopes. Below is a partial list of research applications which have benefited from the use of Block's quantum cascade lasers.
