The Technology behind the DV3000
The DV3000 uses an ultraviolet light source, which enters the sample chamber and makes multiple passes between mirrors. The light passes through the chamber and any gas species which is present. Each species has its own unique absorption spectrum, like a fingerprint, and this is detected by the spectrometer and converted via complex algorithms to identify each individual species present at its concentration. The detection method is rapid and requires no expensive chemicals or coolants and will not require repeat calibration.
