Nitrogen Oxides (NOx)

DETECT NOx IN REAL TIME & IN SITU WITH UP TO PPB PRECISION

Nitrogen Oxides

Major Applications

nanoplus lasers detect nitrogen oxides detection in numerous applications, such as emission control, breath gas analysis as well as monitoring of medical gas.

Tunable diode laser spectroscopy allows measuring with up to ppb precision in real time and in situ. Providing long-term stability and requiring little maintenanceNO, nanoplus lasers are suitable for operation in harsh environments.

WHICH ABSORPTION LINE IS THE PERFECT ONE FOR YOUR APPLICATION?

Typical Wavelengths

Select your target wavelength

nanoplus offers various wavelengths to target the vibrational-rotational bands of nitrogen oxides . 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 NOx 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 NOx detection below. Learn more about their specifications.

 

Factors which you should consider in your setup

Above wavelengths as well as further customized wavelengths for the detection of nitrogen oxides 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.

Let us know the wavelength you require with an accuracy of 0.1 nm!

Applications & Papers

We compiled several papers on  nitrogen oxides detection based on tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy. Refer to below literature list to read more or select your paper by application.

Applications
CO2 & NOx
Emission control of exhaust fumes: CO2 and NOx

Guided by environmental policies, the automobile industry is concerned to reduce the carbon footprint of vehicles. Automotive suppliers develop innovative combustion engines to control CO2 and NOx concentration in exhaust fumes.

NOx
Monitoring of breath gas: NOx

The field of breath analysis considers NOX as a biomarker for asthma and other pulmonary diseases. This new technology becomes more established for clinical applications. It is a cost-effective and non-invasive method of diagnosis and treatment monitoring.

NOx
Emission control: NOx

NH3 is added in combustion processes to reduce emissions of the flue gas NOx. The two compounds will react to uncritical N2 and H2O. To avoid any corrosive or environmental effects from overuse, the gas volume needs to be continuously monitored.
