Center for Laser Sensing and Diagnostics
Gases, whether emitted from car engines or power plants, absorb light at specific wavelengths.
Researchers at CSU’s Center for Laser Sensing and Diagnostics are making use of this to develop new laser technologies that can detect, identify and measure various gases.
The center focuses on how these technologies can be applied to energy, the environment and plasmas, including measurements of engine emissions, basic combustion and plasma systems, trace atmospheric gases and propulsion devices.
Researchers also work closely with other campus departments and efforts related to atmospheric science, chemistry and air quality.
