The HoloChip technology is an enabler for more distributed and failsafe detection systems, through excellent price/performance, real multispectral gas selectivity and long term stability.

The compact lightweight and power efficient HoloChip technology opens for main-stream multigas respiration monitoring with applications from operating rooms to home care.

OptoSense has demonstrated several sensors for multiple gases based on the HoloChip technology. The multigas demonstration benches covers measurements of Hydrocarbons, Alcohols, Fluorinated Ethers, CO2 and other gases. Detection of refrigerants (HFCs, HFOs, HCs, Ammonia and CO2) represents an important new opportunity.
