Quantum cascade laser LIDar Advanced Device

Project description

Advanced remote sensing for a better look at the air we breathe

Lasers are increasingly used in remote sensing devices. Analysing the reflection of light of different wavelengths as it bounces off objects can provide information about obstacles in the light’s path. Light detection and ranging, or LIDAR, is one of the most common remote sensing methods, using light in the form of a pulsed or modulated laser to detect features. With EU support, the QuaLIDAD project is harnessing high-tech quantum cascade lasers on the path to an improved and compact LIDAR system working in the mid IR. The new technology will enable analysis of the chemicals and particles in the air, supporting better management of pollution and greenhouse gases.
