nanoplus lasers detect acetylene detection in numerous applications, such as quality control, breath gas analysis as well as explosion prevention.
Tunable diode laser spectroscopy allows measuring C2H2 with up to ppb precision in real time and in situ. Providing long-term stability and requiring little maintenance, nanoplus lasers are suitable for operation in harsh environments.
nanoplus offers various wavelengths to target the vibrational-rotational bands of aceytylene. Select the target wavelength that fits your application best.
The literature recommends several options. They are illustrated in the graphic on the right, which shows the relative intensities of the possible absorption lines. To define the most suitable C2H2 wavelength for your application, you may have a look at our literature recommendations below or refer to the HITRAN database from the Smithsonian Institute.
We present the most common Distributed Feedback lasers for C2H2 detection below. Learn more about their specifications.
Above wavelengths as well as further customized wavelengths for acetylene detection are available from nanoplus.
When you choose your wavelength, you have to consider your product set up, environment and nature of the measurement.
These factors influence the optimum wavelength for your application. Do have a look at the Hitran Database to further evaluate your choice of wavelengths. Our application experts are equally happy to discuss with you the most suitable wavelength for your application.

We compiled several papers on acetylene detection based on tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy. Refer to below literature list to read more or select your paper by application.
Acetylene (C2H2) is used for gas welding, because the flame is easily adjustable. At the same time, acetylene is highly explosive when it mixes with oxygen or when there is a sudden change in pressure or temperature. Even at relatively low temperatures, like 306°, a little electric spark is sufficient to cause an explosion. For workers' safety the acetylene concentration has to be continuously monitored.
Medical breath analysis considers ethane and acetelyne as a biomarkers for asthma, schizophrenia or lung cancer. The research field of breath analysis uses methane as a biomarker for intestinal problems.[ 10 ]
