1.  Dr. Markus Mangold, Empa, Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Tes, SWITZERLAND
Late-Breaking Results: Novel gas cell design for CO2 isotopic composition measurements using mid-infrared laser absorption spectroscopy
Speaker Biography: Markus Mangold has studied Nanotechnology at the University of Basel, Switzerland, from where he graduated in 2007. He obtained the degree as a Master of Science for his studies on the electrical conductance of organic molecules incorporated in gold nanoparticle networks. Markus continued his education at the "Technische Universität München", Germany. During his PhD he studied the optoelectronic properties of gold nanoparticle arrays and electrically contacted organic molecules. Recently, he turned to mid-infrared spectroscopy. As a post-doctoral fellow at Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research, he develops a gas sensing platform, suitable for trace gases, including high-precision CO2 isotope ratio measurements.

Summary: Mid-infrared (MIR) laser spectroscopy is widely used to monitor trace gas species in industrial, medical, and environmental applications. Also known as the spectral fingerprint region, MIR is especially attractive because it contains the strong fundamental ro-vibrational bands. Especially in combination with room temperature, continuous wave quantum cascade lasers, MIR laser spectroscopy allows for excellent selectivity, sensitivity, and precision.
