Schematic comparison of the conventional approach and this invention for a sample (analyte + solvent) with a strong solvent absorption band in the spectral range of interest.

Spectrum Adjuster and Producing a Pure Analyte Spectrum

Inventors

Young Jong Lee

Patent Description This invention is a spectroscopic method that adjusts the incident light intensity as a function of wavelength to flatten the solvent-only transmitted light spectrum over an interesting wavelength range. When a solvent has a strong absorption band within an interesting spectral

High Efficiency Photon Detection

Inventors

Rachel Cannara, Fred Sharifi, Alex Smolyanitsky

Patent Description A detection pixel includes a material that is chosen so that its (averaged) atomic number density leads to the Compton process being the dominant scattering mechanism in response to incident photons, leading to production of Compton electrons with sufficient number and kinetic

Optical Parametric Oscillator

Inventors

Keith R. Lykke, Steven W. Brown, John T. Woodward

Patent Description This invention is a light source that provides high-power (1W to 5W), narrow line-width (<1 nm), quasi-continuous wave (80 MHz) light that can be tuned in wavelength from 340 nm to 2300 nm. See figure below. The light source is fully automated, solid state, and fits on a
