The Spectronus analyser provides simultaneous measurements of multiple greenhouse gas species with high repeatability and excellent precision without the need for frequent gas calibrations.
The Spectronus analyser combines a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer, multi-pass gas sample cell and a high performance detector. It uses sophisticated software for fully automated operation and real-time quantitative analysis of trace gases in air or other gas mixtures.
About Dr David Griffith
Dr David Griffith is the principal of Griffspec Pty Ltd consultancy and Senior Professor of Chemistry at the University of Wollongong (UoW), Australia. With his research group at the UoW he developed a high precision multi-species greenhouse and other trace gas analyser based on Fourier Transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy which is now manufactured, marketed and supported by ECOTECH Pty Ltd as the Spectronus Trace gas analyser.
The Spectronus FTIR analyser was developed out of research at the University of Wollongong (UoW) and elsewhere from the late 1980s onward. A representative list of papers describing its development and subsequent applications can be found in the Spectronus Bibliography.
Did you know? Spectronus is now approved for use within the Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS) network as an ICOS greenhouse gas analyser.
