Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) technology offers a fast-response, accurate measurement that is highly specific to the gas of interest. This non-contact, non-depleting sensing is used in our innovative, compact SERVOTOUGH Laser 3 Plus range of analyzers.
Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) analyzers use a single-line “monochromatic” spectroscopic technique that offers highly stable calibration, a continuous, fast, in-situ measurement, and the avoidance of optical cross-interference from other gases.
The TDL system consists of a laser light source, transmitting optics, an optically accessible absorbing medium, receiving optics and detector(s).
The signal information is held in the gas absorption line shape, which is obtained by scanning the laser wavelength over the specific absorption line. This causes a reduction of the measured signal intensity, which is detected by a photodiode and used to determine the gas concentration and other properties.
Our TDL analyzers use a second harmonic detection (2f) modulation technique that delivers greater accuracy, sensitivity and reliability of measurement, especially in low ppm-level measurements.
TDL sensing can work alongside Zirconia sensors in combustion applications, providing complementary carbon monoxide and methane measurements. It is susceptible to a range of environmental factors that must be compensated for, including path length variation, window purge gas effects, optical interferences and temperature and pressure changes. A specially configured version of TDL sensing is used in our Laser Moisture analyzers.
