Article in Science, “Microresonator soliton dual comb spectroscopy”, Vol. 354, Issue. 6312, pp. 600.
Summary of article: Improving on a known technique, dual comb spectroscopy, this research uses miniaturization on a chip to take the spectroscopy technique to a level useful for on chip, continuous flow analysis of gaseous analytes in a non destructive manner through normalizing an analyte spectrum with that of a reference spectrum. Possible applications of the technique could be in real-time on chip measurement of analyte concentration in systems on a chip applications such as those in microfluidics based miniaturized reactors, or analysis packages on robotic rovers to other planets.
