MINERVA mid-IR photonic technology
-Low loss robust chalcogenide fibres for fibre lasers, supercontinuum generation and delivery
-Mid-IR glass fused fibre components
-Low cost T2SL MWIR and LWIR FPA detectors
-Simulation, design and fabrication of a range of mid-IR SCG sources
| High volume pathology screening
(i.e. automated microscope-based examination of samples)
|In vivo, remote, real-time skin surface examination
(i.e. non-invasive investigation of suspected skin cancer).
This project will open the mid-IR to further exploitation, and the technology developed will be transferable to a huge range of applications both in bio-photonics and in wider industry.
