Sensirion’s affiliate IRsweep launched the first cost-effective spectrometer product with industry-leading lead times. With their new IRis-C, they are making spectroscopy more accessible for a variety of lab and field applications.
The new IRis-C is more compact, less complex and, with prices starting in the five-digit range (EUR/USD) significantly more costeffective than competing products on the market. Similar to IRsweep’s previous dual-comb spectrometers, the IRis-C offers a unique combination of high speed, high signal to noise ratio per time, and as well as optical power.
“Drawing on six years of experience with our IRis-F1 spectrometer, we are now able to offer a solution that incorporates the most sought-after features of QCL spectrometers in a compact form factor at a price that will make them more accessible to all researchers, scientists and engineers,”
agree the co-founders of IRsweep, Markus Mangold, Andreas Hugi and Markus Geiser.
The new spectrometer is based on dual-comb spectroscopy – a Nobel-prize winning method that provides highresolution and high-speed analysis of the molecular composition of samples. The light sources are quantum cascade laser frequency combs, which are known for their stability and high optical power. The spectrometer’s compact size and cost-effectiveness make it ideal for a variety of settings, including academic and industrial research. The modular approach of separating emission and detection unit further makes it suitable for integration into field applications ranging from stand-off detection to process monitoring.
