Research and Development ProjectsNEO is committed to continued research in gas spectroscopy, and in addition to our own internal research and product development we participate in international co-operative research projects with the long-term goal to be a leading supplier of gas monitors and analysers based on spectroscopic techniques with the main focus on single line spectroscopy. We are currently involved in several R&D projects sponsored by the EU Commission where the objectives are to develop and demonstrate new spectroscopic techniques for new applications in the industry. The work involves the use of DFB tuneable diode laser, VCSELs, Quantum Cascade lasers and widely tuneable OPOs as single frequency radiation sources.
In ROSE the main objective is to assess remote optical measurement
techniques (ROMT) in the context of the application environment where
they will be employed, with the ultimate goal to make recommendations
for a draft European standard for performance and operation of ROMT
(Open path) instruments.
|HF||Air Quality/ Process control/ Safety||Aluminium Plants Oil, Refineries|
|H2S||Air Quality/Safety||Detection of leaks from oil/gas installations|
|CH4||Safety||Detection of leaks from oil/gas installations|
|CO||Safety/Fire protection||Detection of smouldering fires in buildings|
|CO2||Air Quality||Traffic Control|
This will open up new market possibilities in areas where this technique has not been used so far, such as in-situ measurements of trace gases in pure as well process gases used in critical industrial applications.
