COHERENT ANTI-STOKES RAMAN SCATTERING (CARS) SPECTROSCOPY FOR DIAGNOSTIC APPLICATIONS

Innovations and Benefits

Measurements of chemical-physical parameters of solids, liquids or gases by means of non-invasive optical analysis.

Use

Spectral analysis where the molecular response is selectively excited by means of calibrated combinations of three laser pulses. The spectral features taken from the optical response provide information about the chemical-physical parameters (for example, gas temperature or chemical bonds in liquids and solids, etc.).
Applications are known in production and control of energy (mainly, combustion), or in studies of biological and biochemical samples, matter science and environmental research.
All the applications make use of high spatial and temporal resolution in addition to the high chemical selectivity.

Applications and ongoing Activities

Thermometric measurements in reacting gases during combustion.

Characteristics

CUSTOM Thanks to its flexibility, the service can be adjusted to specific needs and contexts
