QuantaRed is a high-tech spin-off company from the Vienna University of Technology (TU). The team started their R&D activities with Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) technology in 1999. It was the first company world-wide to discover the technological advantages in the measurement of liquids and the industrial potential of this technology. The first intellectual property patent was filed in 2001. This IP grants extensive patent protection for various fields of applications, while further patents are in progress. The uniqueness of QuantaRed's products is based on the specific properties of Quantum Cascade Lasers. The team combines significant experience in providing solutions to a multitude of industries including the gas, liquids, petroleum gas and energy industry.
Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) are semiconductor lasers which can be tailored to emit light across the whole mid-IR spectral region where almost all molecules show characteristic absorption features. Based on the fact that the spectral power density of QCLs is very sharp and three orders of magnitude higher than that of a blackbody radiator (FTIR), maximum sensitivity and selectivity is achieved. For this reason, QCLs are highly competitive when it comes to solve specific analytical tasks. At QuantaRed technologies, QCLs are embedded in compact size measurement modules comprising flow cell, detector and electronics. Thus a new generation of portable high precision liquid-phase analyzers has been developed.
