This website is devoted to a European Project called SENSHY. In a collaborative effort scientists and engineers from all across Europe team up in this project to develop a new generation of laser based gas sensing systems for hydrocarbons.
SensHy project aims to achieve the following goals
- realization of GaSb based laser material enabling room temperature continuous wave operation in the wavelength range from 3.0 to 3.6 µm,
- development of laser diodes with increased tuning range,
- demonstration of highly sensitive hydrocarbon detection making use of widely tunable lasers and novel digital-signal-processing schemes to identify various gas constituents within a multi-component hydrocarbon gas mixture.
