Real-time, ultra-sensitive measurement is required for a wide array of applications, including pollution and GHG monitoring. Traditional approaches such as non-dispersed infrared absorption (NDIR) and Chemiluminescence are slowly being augmented or in some cases replaced with new, laser-based analyzers that are capable of providing real-time ppb-level detection of key atmospheric species.
