  • Patent number: 7871171
    Abstract: A focusing-device for the radiation from a light source (2) is provided with a collector mirror (1, 1?) which is arranged in a mount (24) and collects the light, in virtual or real terms, from the light source (2) at the second focus (200). The collector mirror (1, 1?) is displaceably connected to the mount (24) via a bearing in such a way that its optical properties remain at least approximately the same even in the event of temperature changes.

  • Patent number: 7802891
    Abstract: A faceted mirror apparatus includes a support plate having a plurality of stepped reception bores into which are fitted the base portions of respective ones of a plurality of mirror facets having mirrored surfaces. An outer surface of each of the facets bears on an inner wall to provide a stable alignment of the optical axes of the mirrored surfaces such that the apparatus generates a beam of rays from impinging rays.

  • Publication number: 20100002235
    Abstract: A gas detection laser diode device and gas detection unit including the gas detection laser diode device having a hermetically sealed housing with electrical connectors at the bottom and a window, and inside the housing a laser diode and thermistor mounted on one stage of a thermo element. The thermo element is connected with the other stage to the base of the housing. Collimating means are arranged in the laser beam between the laser diode and the window. The window is tilted in respect to the axis of the laser beam such, that the ordinary reflection of the laser beam is steered off the laser beam axis and at least does not impinge on the laser diode. Preferably the collimating means and the laser diode are mounted on a same surface for holding them on the same temperature. The new device allows the detection of toxic gases with reduced detection limits over the prior art. The arrangement further claims a method to achieve reduced detection limits for gases.

  • Patent number: 7636153
    Abstract: A combined gas sensor device allowing the measuring of the concentration of a gas by tunable diode laser spectrometry as well as by resonant photo-acoustics within one housing. A laser beam used for laser spectrometry is sent across the openings of a measuring cell usually used for resonant photo-acoustic determination. Thus, both measuring principles use the same gas sensing module with a minimum of space consumption, so that the device can be produced with minimum dimensions. Further, a common opto-electronics and electronics platform can be used which reduces the overall costs of such a combined gas sensor.

  • Patent number: 7605922
    Abstract: A method for performing quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy of a gas, includes providing a light source configured to introduce a laser beam having at least one wavelength into the gas such said at least one molecule within in the gas is stimulated generating an acoustic signal, accumulating the acoustic signal in a resonant acoustic detector, generating a resonant absorption signal (SA) relative to the gas concentration by at least one tuning fork serving as resonant acoustic detector, generating additionally a resonant intensity signal (SI) proportional to the intensity of the laser beam travelling through the gas, and providing an output signal (SGC) from said absorption signal (SA) and said intensity signal (SI) being independent of the intensity of the light relative to the presence or concentration of the gas.
