Infrared Applications

High performance Quantum Cascade Laser Arrays enable next-generation technologies.

Pendar Technologies is built around the concept that solutions should not be constrained by a single technology or limited to results from a narrow bandwidth of light.   Because it brings together a diverse group of engineers and scientists with experience in a broad range of techniques, Pendar Technologies is well positioned to develop tailored, multi-modal systems for previously unaddressed markets.

Quantam Cascade Laser Arrays

At the core of the approach we have taken at Pendar Technologies is the monolithic distributed feedback (DFB) QCL array.

Our QCL array source is a highly stable, rapidly and continuously wavelength tunable broadband infrared source that can be used for illumination in reflectance, absorption and transmission spectroscopies. Each element of the array is individually addressable and emits at a different wavelength by design.

Pendar Technologies holds an exclusive license for the technology, developed by our founding team in the group of Professor Federico Capasso at Harvard University.

Spectroscopy with QCL Arrays

Targeting the strongest absorption bands with high brightness and eye-safe illumination, spectroscopy is fast and clear with Pendar Technologies’s QCL Array-based instrumentation.

Our compact and rugged systems extract the full potential of QCL arrays, through our complete control of the laser design, manufacturing and system integration processes. They enable breakthroughs in IR spectroscopy, including gas analysis [Michel et al., 2017; Giglio et al., 2018] and standoff chemical detection [Laser Focus World; Witinski et al., 2018].

Targeted IR Power

High power QCLs for applications such as beacons, sighting, and material processing.
