IRsweep has a vision to revolutionise optical sensing by introducing an ultrafast laser spectrometer in the mid‐infrared. It is based on Quantum Cascade Laser Frequency Combs invented by IRsweep’s co‐founders in 2012 at ETH Zurich. The spectrometer is the backbone of IRsweep’s commercial activities in the next few years and represents the technological basis for further integration into process analytics and possibly portable applications.

A spectrometer is a common piece of equipment in industries and laboratories, used to investigate the molecular composition of a sample in a nondestructive way. The main drawback of today’s spectrometers is their low speed: measurement times of seconds to minutes are needed for the acquisition of a complete spectrum. However, many processes happen on timescales of microseconds, which can’t be observed with these techniques. Moreover, the analysis of large sample numbers can take a long time.

The IRis-F1 is a laser‐based infrared spectrometer which exploits the extraordinary sensing performance of so‐called frequency‐combs in the mid‐infrared spectral region. As a result, the IRis-F1 offers an unmatched combination of high measurement speed (microsecond time resolution) with the high brightness of a laser‐based instrument and a multi‐colour output.
