The Internet of Things (IoT) does not work without sensors, mid IR sensors provide a significant aspect of modern visualization and sensing. Drones use mid IR sensors for cameras and for navigation. Robots use mid IR cameras for navigation. The intelligence community has used this mid IR sensor technology for a long time and the technology is now gaining traction in the commercial markets.

Mid IR sensors can measure chemical composition of materials and gas. The efficiency is unmatched by any other technology; cost is increasingly competitive. Mid IR has extended use beyond military applications to commercial systems, including the Internet of things where sensors become part of network systems.

Mid-infrared sensors and imaging applications depend on quantum cascade laser (QCL) technology. Daylight Solutions quantum cascade laser (QCL) technology has been delivered to more systems for more customers in more applications than all other QCL-based solutions combined. Advances in QC laser technology and spectrometer hardware are combined with spectroscopic techniques. Intra pulse spectroscopy and similar techniques provide a major step change in sensitivity, speed of operation, fingerprinting capability, size and cost. They offer a major improvement on methods of gas detection. Recent advances in spectrometer hardware relate to QC gas sensors.

Advances exploit recent technological advances including miniaturized integrated electronic systems, plug and play interfaces and micro optics. These will progressively replace unwieldy, fragile and expensive instrumentation.

The lasing wavelength for QCL's is determined by the choice of semiconductor material. By adjusting the physical thickness of the semiconductor layers new functionality is achieved. This removes the material barriers associated with conventional semiconductor laser technology.

Mid IR analyzers in process control are expected to save trillions of Btus annually in the petrochemical sector. Process control and environmental monitoring potential applications are evolving for this technology.

Examples of mid IR applications follow.

Combustion emissions analysis
Fugitive emissions control
Contraband detection
Improved safety conditions for plant workers
On-site detection of chemicals

The decrease in size of units from bench size devices to portable units makes them more useful across the board in every industry.
