The miniaturized EC-QCL with integrated MOEMS diffraction grating developed by Fraunhofer IAF and Fraunhofer IPMS is one of the core technologies matured to high technology readiness level (TRL) in the first project phase and will eventually be offered by the European pilot line project »MirPhab«.
The business unit »Photodetektors« is developing and manufacturing photoconductive single detectors for the long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) – based on antimonidic type II superlattices – in small batch series. Our detector chips are manufactured using GaAs substrate and then separated at our project partner VIGO. They are then provided with a microlens and integrated in a casing with a thermo-electric cooling unit. The robust III-V detector technology tolerates increased surrounding temperatures and is flexibly adapted to customer needs.
