Miro Analytical

 

Background:

  • MIRO develops gas analyzers which use direct laser absorption spectroscopy in the mid-infrared region to determine the concentration of gas molecules. This spectral fingerprint region provides the highest possible precision for most gases. By combining several laser sources the analyzers can measure multiple gas compounds in a single instrument. The analyzers with the associated powerful tools are used for example by authorities, scientists and companies to monitor and report on air pollution and greenhouse gases.

 

Our accomplishment:

  • Sotronik supports MIRO to develop the instrument’s software in LabVIEW, which controls the measurement process, retrieves the results from spectral data and provides online access through several interfaces.
