Summary

Based on Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS), TigerOptics HALO3 series can measure the sub-ppb level of gas species with absolute accuracy, proven reliability, and fast response in one compact and easy-to-use device.

Application

  • Quality control for laboratory analysis
  • Gas and chemical manufacturing
  • R&D of moisture analysis and moisture standard

Features

  • NIST traceable
  • High sensitivity, high accuracy, high reliability, high speed of response
  • Compact, ease of operation, no periodic replacement/maintenance
  • Analyte: H2O, CO, CO2, CH4, HF, etc.
  • Gas analysis over a vast range, H2O in N2 : 400ppt~20ppm (HALO KA H2O)
  • Ethernet, isolated 4-20 mA and RS-232 connectivity

Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy(CRDS)

1.A Continuous Wave (CW) diode laser emits a directed beam of light energy through an ultra-high reflective mirror into the absorption cell (cavity).

2.The light reflects back and forth between two ultra-high reflective mirrors multiple times, up to a total path length of 100 kilometers.

3.Once the photodiode detector “sees” a preset level of light energy, the light source is shuttered or diverted from the cavity.

4.On each successive pass, a small amount of light or ring-down signal emits through the second mirror and is sensed by the light detector.

5.Once the light "rings down", the detector achieves a point of zero light energy in milliseconds, and the measurement is complete.
