Tiger Optics’ Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS)

Detection at the Speed of Light

Based on absorption spectroscopy, the Tiger Optics’ Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) works by attuning light rays to the unique molecular fingerprint of the sample species. By measuring the time it takes the light to fade or “ring-down”, you receive an accurate molecular count in milliseconds. The time of light decay, in essence, provides an exact, non-invasive, and rapid means to detect contaminants in the air, in gases, and even in the breath.

A breakthrough discovery by Professor Kevin Lehmann, Ph.D., of Princeton University made the commercialization of this technique possible.  He proved that compact, relatively inexpensive, and widely available Continuous Wave (CW) lasers can substitute for the costly, cumbersome pulsed lasers previously used in CRDS-based research.  He thereby made the requisite power of light affordable and practical for commercial use.

Hyper-Thin-Film (HTF™)

Aluminum Oxide Technology

The COSA Xentaur breakthrough Hyper-Thin-Film (HTF) Technology is based on major advances in thin-film technology and metal oxide sciences. It provides measurements with a sensitivity several orders of magnitude larger than of those made with all other technologies. HTF sensors are free of drift and insensitive to temperature changes over most of their range.

The COSA Xentaur HTF technology in our dew point meters share the same basic operating principle: the capacitance measured between the sensor’s aluminum core and a gold film deposited on top of the oxide layer varies with the water vapor content in the pores of the oxide layer.  The thinner layer also means that water molecules will travel faster in and out of the pores. HTF aluminum oxide sensors therefore respond several times faster than conventional sensors.
