A portable CLaDS instrument has been deployed for the environmental monitoring of nitrous oxide at Princeton University (invention partners). This proved the instruments enhanced properties over other traditional sensors, and shows outstanding performance in terms of sensitivity, robustness and reliability of results.

A table –top instrument is currently being built at the STFC (Oxford) to demonstrate the technique’s capabilities with methane and ultimately to find partners to develop products at target applications. A custom spectrum analyser specified for CLaDS is in development that will aid the further miniaturisation of the instrument. The likely finish date of this instrument is July 2013.
