Nanosecond Time-resolved Mid-Infrared Transient Absorption Spectrometer

Ultra-High Sensitivity Low Cost Transient Spectrometer.Penn State inventors have developed a novel infrared transient absorption (MIR-TA) spectrometer that has enhanced sensitivity, versatility, and ease of use as compared to current models. Researchers believe that a 100x increase in signal over known methods, coupled with a 10x lower price point than conventional instruments, will allow for new market opportunities and enable researchers to use MIR-TA to characterize chemical processes, catalysis, and biochemical reactions. -John Asbury, 2017 LB2C Recipient.
