REDFINCH – COMPACT, PORTABLE CHEMICAL SENSORS
Mid-infrared photonic integrated circuits (mid-IR PICs) are the subject of increasing interest due to the large amount of sensing applications in the 2-20 µm wavelength range. REDFINCH will use hybrid and monolithic integration of III-V diode and Interband Cascade/Quantum Cascade materials with silicon to create high performance cost effective sensors based on Photonic Integrated Circuits.
REDFINCH (https://www.redfinch.eu/) will realise three fully-integrated PIC-based chemical sensor demonstrators for:
1) Process gas analysis in refineries
2) Gas leak detection in petrochemical plants
3) Liquid sensor for protein analysis in the dairy industry.
REDFINCH is a consortium of 8 European research institutes and companies, undertaking cutting edge R&D into novel, high performance, cost effective chemical sensors, based on Mid-Infrared Photonic Integrated Circuits (MIR PICs).
