MidInfraRed PHotonics devices fABrication for chemical sensing and spectroscopic applications

[H2020 Call: ICT-28-2015: Cross-cutting ICT KETs]

The MIRPHAB (Mid InfraRed PHotonics devices fABrication for chemical sensing and spectroscopic applications) consortium will establish a pilot line to serve the growing needs of European industry in the field of analytical micro-sensors. Its main objectives are to: 

• provide a reliable supply of mid-infrared (MIR) photonic components for companies incl. in particular SMEs
already active in analytical MIR sensing
• reduce investment cost to access innovative MIR solutions for companies already active in the field of
analytical sensors, but new to MIR photonics based sensing
• attract companies new to the field of analytical sensors, aiming to integrate μ-sensors into their products.

To fullfil those objectives, MIRPHAB is organized as a distributed pilot line formed by leading European industrial suppliers of MIR photonic components, complemented by first class European R&D institutes with processing facilities capable of carrying out pilot line production. For MIRPHAB, Alpes will on the one hand validate a set of processes to establish a library of capabilities available to the pilot line members for QCL based products realization and on the other hand will bring to fully industrialized maturity (TRL-9(8)) enabling products offering monolithically integrated extended wavelength coverage devices.
