MIRPHAB (Mid InfraRed Photonics devices fabrication for chemical sensing and spectroscopic applications) is an all-services Pilot Line for the fabrication of Mid-Infrared sensors, a single access point to the best technology, facilities and expertise provided by a consortium of leading companies in the field of photonics. MIRPHAB will be an open technology platform with special focus on SMEs, providing services for device design and fabrication from chip processing on wafer level to packaging and testing as well as training services to customers. MIRPHAB reduces the barriers to introduce your chemical sensor into the market by granting your proposal up 230k€. For more information please visit www.mirphab.eu.

PIXAPP is the world’s first open-access Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) Assembly and Packaging Pilot line, and helps users exploit the breakthrough advantages of PIC technologies. PIXAPP consists of a highly-interdisciplinary team of Europe’s leading industrial & research organisations, and provides users with single-point access to PIC assembly and packaging. The Pilot Line Gateway Office is PIXAPP’s the easy-access interface for external users, and is located at the Tyndall National Institute, in Ireland. PIXAPP bridges the ‘valley of death’ often associated with moving from prototyping to low-volume fabrication, by giving companies an easy-access route to transferring R&D results to the market.
