University of Virginia Chemistry Professor Kevin Lehmann, who has created a spectroscope that utilizes continuous wave lasers to perform Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy or CRDS. Lehmann’s contribution to the field demonstrated that these lasers can be used instead of the costly, cumbersome pulsed lasers formerly used for CRDS. His advancement in the technology has been utilized in healthcare, manufacturing and his own field chemistry.
