Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


An open-path, ICL-based ethane sensor is developed with low power consumption (24 W) and fast response (1 Hz). Use on a mobile laboratory allows for discriminating between thermogenic (fossil fuels) and biogenic (wetlands, agriculture) methane.
