The MEMS diffractive optical element, which is the heart of GasSecure's wireless gas detector, was in its early days developed in cooperation with the European Space Agency. ESA has published an extensive article describing the technology.
“Research co-funded by ESA and the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Lab of Norwegian research organisation SINTEF has produced the simplest gas detector possible,” said Benedikt Guldimann, overseeing the project for ESA. “The resulting product is much smaller, robust and reliable than existing systems, with low power requirements and no recalibration needed.”
