In this paper, we present a thorough comparison of mid-infrared techniques, focusing on the two dominant solutions: QCL and FTIRs. Consequently, we will cover the technical challenges the DCS technique has to overcome to be superior to the FTIR technique. Pushing the DCS technique, we manage to get µs time resolution for up to 131 ms acquisition time as well as < 1 ms time-resolution for reactions which take > 10s. Furthermore, we have improved the spectral coverage of QCL DCS covering more than 100 cm-1 . Overall, the combination of high-speed, spectral bandwidth and high-brightness of this highly coherent source puts DCS at an advantage compared to FTIRs for a plethora of applications, such as liquid analysis (e.g. protein analysis, dioxin measurement, stopped flow), fiber applications and high-resolution spectroscopy. As such, we will give a comprehensive review of applications which are targeted today using QCL DCS. This covers bio-, environmental/gas, combustion as well as water analysis.
