At Gasera we are passionate about helping solve the major global challenges that face society today. We are immensely proud that our unique trace gas measurement products, have for several years now, helped protect the environment and kept people safe from exposure to harmful and deadly gases. We’ve also helped our industrial customers become more energy efficient and green, by providing a real-time insight into many different manufacturing processes through our accurate and rapid part per billion (ppb) level gas detection products. Gasera oneHF, a hydrogen fluoride gas monitor to measure low levels of hydrogen fluoride in ambient air. Whether you are replacing slow, costly offline laboratory measurement of gas samples or looking to gain further insight with accurate and immediate gas detection in a challenging environment, we are here to help and have a product suitable for you.
At Gasera, we are continually striving to make our measurement solutions even better for our customers, and making their gas detection requirements easier and lower cost across a wide range of industrial applications. Our unique patented technology is currently being miniaturized to provide robust, lower cost, portable and hand-held instruments that can still accurately and reliably detect a range of gases even down to parts per trillion (ppt) levels. This is only possible with Gasera’s patented photoacoustic MEMS technology.
Our unique products benefit from a lifetime spent pioneering and developing our core technology by one of our company founder’s Professor Dr. Jyrki Kauppinen. He had the vision and expert understanding that this technology uniquely offered the possibility for robust, accurate, rapid, part per trillion (ppt) level detection in small and lower cost formats, unlike all other selective gas detection systems which typically cannot be miniaturized without losing most of their sensitivity.
All of Gasera’s products have been developed by our team to be easy to use, low to no maintenance, and to provide the best possible performance at industry leading prices.
Gasera’s gas measurements affect multiple industries from public sector to manufacturing industries. Gasera offers a unique opportunity for both technical and business professionals to take a step to fast growing global high-tech company.
In Gasera, you will work with an internationally respected team of experts, in inspiring working environment and with motivating work tasks. The work tasks create opportunities to sharpen your skills in international business, sales, marketing, product development, project management and research projects. Our headquarters is located in the beautiful city of Turku, Finland.

Gasera is based on the life-work of Dr. Jyrki Kauppinen, a professor in the field of physics (currently retired). After building spectrometers for the purpose of studying materials, he realized that the same principle could be used to solve major global challenges and ultimately help people live longer and happier. His mission was set to finding the solution how to bring this technology so small and low cost, that it could be eventually utilized by every human being.
The answer was to use the photoacoustic principle. The inherent features of the photoacoustic spectroscopy makes it ideal for various demanding gas analysis applications and it holds the unique potential to be miniaturized without compromising the ultra high performance!
The tsory of Gasera company began when the son of Prof. Kauppinen founded the company to commersialise professors revolutionary innovation and to make sure that his mission becomes reality. This then became the mission of his son.
“Everything can be solved with interferometers”
In the early nineties Professor Kauppinen discovered the unleashed power of the photoacoustic principle. At that time, the prior art of photoacoustic sensors was limited by the lack of sensitivity and lack of temperature and pressure immunity. Relentless efforts finally resulted in the invention of “optical cantilever microphone” which could overcome all of the above mentioned drawbacks.
Gasera’s superior technology originates from interferometry, which has been under Prof. Kauppinen’s research since the early seventies.
The break through was made in 2001 when Prof. Kauppinen, invented the silicon cantilever sensor with optical interferometric readout. This system could be made virtually immune to temperature variations and the sensitivity was soon proven to be over 100 times more compared to the prior art. Furthermore, these inventions now enable photoacoustic gas measurements at elevated temperatures (up to 200 Celsius) first time ever.
Prof. Kauppinen built his first high resolution FTIR spectrometer at the University of Oulu, Finland. This spectrometer was the fifth highest resolution FTIR instrument in the world when it started to record spectra in 1971. Later Prof. Kauppinen modified the interferometer by introducing cube-corner mirrors. The modified cube-corner interferometer achieved the resolution of 0.001 1/cm, which is still the highest practical resolution achieved.
At the University of Turku in Finland Prof. Kauppinen has built a new cube-corner interferometer with a resolution of 0.0004 1/cm. Further, Kauppinen has produced infrared wavenumber standards and studied a lot of rotation-vibration spectra of molecules with his high resolution interferometer. He has developed the gauge measuring interferometer for the Finnish standard of length, low-resolution stationary interferometers (without moving parts), small, very stable low resolution interferometers (for IR, NIR, VIS, and UV) and the treatment of experimental data by various sophisticated mathematical methods such as resolution enhancement using Fourier Self-Deconvolution and the extrapolation of signals.
From the lab to the market – ultimate performance gas analysis
The quest for commercializing the life work of Prof. Kauppinen and his innovations in the field of infrared spectroscopy began in late 2004 when Gasera Ltd. was founded by Prof. Kauppinen’s son who is currently the CEO of the company. Currently Gasera employs about thirty highly educated specialists from the areas of physics, chemistry, mechanics, electronics and business.
