Put it on a UAV, create a remote monitoring station, develop a handheld device – this is spectral sensing made quick, easy and flexible. 

 optical oxygen sensor for DO or gaseous O2 Optical Oxygen Sensors
Optical O2 sensors measure the fluorescence quenching by O2 of fluorophores excited by a pulsed LED. The fluorophores are captured in our zero-drift chemistries designed for use in water, gases, foods, slurries, solvents and other media.  The sensors are read by our Neofox phase fluorometer in either a USB lab format or a portable version called the Sport.

We have dozens of probe styles and even patches that can be read remotely.

Interesting Applications & Setups

Tissue spectroscopy -- reveals oxy and de-oxy hemoglobin concentrations.
Absorbance spectra of human tissue - hemoglobin analysis

ocean opticsThis spectra shows the Fraunhofer lines in the solar spectra. The data was obtained with an HR4000 high resolution spectrometer. These lines are absorption bands due to gases and volatile compounds in the atmosphere

Spectra taken on Mars by ChemCam with Ocean Optics spectrometerHere is one of the first spectra taken on Mars by the ChemCam system on the lander Curiousity.  The spectra was obtained using laser breakdown spectroscopy... a laser zaps a sample of rock (or dust in this case) and creates a 15K degree plasma that ionizes a tiny portion of the sample. As the plasma cools, electrons return to the atoms and release specific wavelengths of light.  the result is an instant elemental analysis.

ChemCam is a marvel in that it can do this at a distance, using a telescope to capture the spectra. Ocean Optics worked on the design of the space hardened spectrometers, which were based on our HR2000 bench concept.

Modular Spectroscopy makes all of these optical systems possible from a common set of parts
