Transformational Infrared Detectors for Medical and Environmental Sensing
The program will design, grow, process and package a set of state-of-the-art infrared detectors based on an enhanced resonant cavity design.
These detectors are technologically disruptive, using III-V semiconductor materials and an integrated optical cavity to achieve ultra-high performance qualities such as: an extremely narrow linewidth, low background noise and having a signal-to-noise ratio that is 10x greater than that of conventional broadband detectors.
The prototype detectors will be designed around environmental monitoring and medical breath analysis applications.
This project has received funding from the ATTRACT project funded by the EC under Grant Agreement 777222
