This product is now discontinued. The Delta Ray IRIS was designed with field portability and operational simplicity in mind. Its modular design, low weight and small footprint enable it to be placed right at the point of research interest. At the core of the analyzer is a difference frequency generation (DFG) laser that operates in the mid-infrared, where the absorption of CO2 and its isotopologues are so strong that 5 m path length are sufficient to achieve a precision as low as 0.05‰.
A Delta Ray was driven across Canada in 2015. Starting in Halifax and stopping at most major cities across the country, the trip demonstrated the ease with which the Delta Ray could be integrated into a mobile experiment.
