MINERVA extension and opportunity for mid-IR spectroscopy end users
The MINERVA project has been extended for nine months, and will now finish 31-Jul-2017.
This will give the consortium more time to use and exploit the demonstration systems which are being integrated in the project. It is hoped that external users will be able to send samples for high resolution spectroscopic inspection in the mid-IR, and perhaps […]
