An infrared spectroscopic laser source has no need for cryogenic cooling, provides high output powers, has large spectral coverage, provides excellent spectral quality, and has good tunability. The removal of the noise floor provides competitive advantage because it can be implemented without the need of complex fringe removal techniques. It can be done without expensive optical isolators. The feature that allows manageable removal of the noise floor enables the laboratory performance of technology to be commercialized.

Mid IR analyzers in process control are expected to save trillions of Btus annually in the petrochemical sector. Process control and environmental monitoring potential applications are evolving for this technology.

Examples of mid IR applications:
- Combustion emissions analysis
- Fugitive emissions control
- Contraband detection
- Improved safety conditions for plant workers
- On-site detection of chemicals

Medical applications include human breath monitoring, glucose sensing, cancer detection and diagnostics, eye surgery, and environmental health monitoring. Medical and industrial monitoring utilizes trace detection of benzene, toluene or xylene. Medical applications account for a growing mid-IR laser market. The medical area is evolving in both diagnostics and treatment. Improved diagnostics are made possible through photonic technologies.

Mid IR sensors deliver a better understanding of disease: Optical molecular imaging is anticipated to be significant. Mid IR sensors hold the possibility of making medicine much more advanced because of the visibility into patient conditions that will be possible. As visibility into patient condition is refined, so also remedies will be much more refined. Energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy will mean a stronger economy, a cleaner environment, and greater energy independence. Working with a wide array of state, community, industry, and university partners, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy invests in a diverse set of energy technologies.

Mid-IR sensor systems have achieved price to performance levels adequate to assure rapid adoption. Capabilities address a broad range of applications, including: location of people as targets, spectroscopic and bio-medical imaging; materials characterization; standoff explosive detection; microscopy; non-destructive testing. Spectroscopy, and imaging measurements. These are easier, faster, and cost-effective. Military applications account for a significant portion of mid IR sensor markets.

The remaining part of revenue comes from CO2 sensors, building sensors, and units for a range of different markets. Markets at $4.19 billion in 2015 are anticipated to reach $30 billion by 2022 as price performance increases and unit costs decrease from $3,000 per unit to $2,000 per high end unit. $300 per mid-range sensor has dropped to $200. $8 has dropped to $6 per unit providing price points that make the sensors affordable. or less per unit on average drive further interest from commercial buyers.

The decrease in size of units from bench size devices to portable units makes them more useful across the board in every industry.
