The SUREAL-23 project is run by a consortium of European organizations and companies working together to understand more about sub-23 nm particles to better measure and regulate emissions.
Characterization of sub-23 nm particles is done by hitting the particles with light from a supercontinuum laser – across the 400 to 850 nm spectrum – and then measuring the resulting acoustic response. This part of the project made use of a white light supercontinuum laser and a tunable filter from NKT Photonics.
We are thrilled that our products are used in an unconventional way to contribute to making this world a cleaner place. However, this is only a small part of the efforts.
