MIRPHAB - (Mid Infrared PHotonics devices FABrication for chemical sensing and spectroscopic applications)
MIRPHAB is an all-service integrated Pilot Line for the development of MID-IR photonics sensors in Europe, a single-access point to the best technology provided by a consortium of leading companies in the field of photonics. MIRPHAB offers services from market analysis, design and fabrication to the final packaging of prototypes. MIRPHAB’s main objective is to transform your ideas into products and to quickly introduce them into the market.
The aim of MIRPHAB is to deploy new products swiftly in the market achieving a prompt take up in the environmental and chemical sensing areas.
MIRPHAB will study the impact in the market of the potential applications of your sensor.
MIRPHAB provides expert design and fabrication for the development of your MIR sensing device.
Setting up software tools to manage the platform interface and track the fabrication process from design to qualification.
Contribution to the standards for MIR Components & Services, Chemical Detection Instrumentation, MIR chip design, fabrication, test and packaging.
Development of Prototypes
Including design, fabrication, assembly and testing.
Supply of components
Provide a reliable supply of MIR photonic components for companies already active in analytical MIR sensing.
The Mid-InfraRed (MIR) light has a strong interaction with molecular vibrations. In MIR, each molecule presents a unique adsorption spectrum providing a simple solution for sensing.
Sensitivity and selectivity in real-time avoiding sample-pretreatment
MID-IR chemicals sensors have huge potential for innovation in a number of application fields where conventional measurements tools cannot provide in-situ capability, real-time measurement, and unattended operation.

For the demonstration of an Advanced Mirphab Module (AMM), IAF and CEA-LETI collaborated to demonstrate a gas sensing system on a bench. An EC-QCL from IAF was assembled with the miniPA of LETI. CO2, H2O, N2O (AIR) measurements (around 4,3µm) were carried out successfully. This paves the way to compact EC-QCL based Photo-Acoustic gas sensor.

”The goal of MIRPHAB is to bridge the gap between the development of new sensor concepts and the market uptake. Our Pilot Line offers open access to state-of-the-art technologies covering the full chain of optical sensing from the source to the detectors, developing standardized technologies to combine and interface these components at chip or packaging level. With CMP joining MIRPHAB we are targeting to expand the community of MIR optical sensing users to new adopters, providing them fast-track access to prototyping and fabrication of devices specifically tailored for their applications.” Sergio Nicoletti (CEA-LETI), Coordinator of MIRPHAB (more…)
