Launch of Mid IR Alliance dedicated to mid-infrared


T


he Mid IR Alliance, a group of companies active in mid-infrared


technologies at all levels of the supply chain, was launched on 25 May to ensure the continued growth of the sector.


The alliance includes laser and detector manufacturers, developers of mid-infrared cameras and sensors, photonic integrated circuits (PICs) companies, and providers of software for modelling and packaging services. The alliance was founded


by Mirphab, an EC-funded initiative in a public-private partnership with Photonics21. It is a pilot line that offers services for companies for prototyping and manufacturing customised sensing modules based on mid-infrared


technologies. The project is coming to an end, but the mid-infrared community will continue engaging through the Mid-IR Alliance. The mid-infrared spectral


region, from 2.5 to 15μm, is called the molecular-fingerprint region, because most molecules have intense fundamental vibrational bands there. The IR spectrum of a given molecule thus provides a unique way to non-intrusively identify and quantify that molecule in any phase of matter. There are numerous


applications in multiple application fields such as

automotive, oil and gas, space and aerospace, agrifood, environment monitoring, home appliances and much more. Epic member DiaMonTech is one firm that uses infrared technology, in the form of a medical device that non- invasively measures blood glucose without the need for finger pricking, blood tests, or test strips. Users simply need to place their fingertip on the sensor, wait 5 to 15 seconds, and their blood glucose level will be displayed. Another Epic member,


Diafir, has developed the Spid platform, a device for patient screening triage, using a patented mid-infrared light biosensor. Spid analyses the entire metabolic signature spectrum of a patient’s blood serum within minutes, using mid-infrared spectroscopy. Mid-infrared chemical

sensors have huge potential for innovation in several application fields where conventional


measurements tools cannot provide in-situ capability, real-time measurement and unattended operation. If you are looking for a disruptive technology to develop a new product, contact the Mid- IR Alliance to find the right partner in the supply chain.
