MidInfraRed PHotonics devices fABrication for chemical sensing and spectroscopic applications
Its main objectives are to:
- provide a reliable supply of mid-infrared (MIR) photonic components for companies including 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 fulfil 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 industrialised maturity (TRL-8/9) enabling products offering monolithically integrated extended wavelength coverage devices.
