Within the Laser Applications to Chemical, Security and Environmental Analysis (LACSEA) topical meeting,MIRIFISENS set a booth at a Conference Exhibit with different compact QCL systems on display. A compact trace gas sensor for purity high sensitive purity monitoring in gas supply lines from NEOPLAS Control, a compact CO sensor for fire detection in industrial facilities from NEO, and a FAME in jet fuel analyser prototype from QUANTARED
MIRIFISNES project had an Exhibitor Booth within the Laser Applications to Chemical, Security and Environmental Analysis (LACSEA) topical meeting.
MIRIFISENS dissemination activities planned the organization of two workshops.
The first, around the mid-project, focusing on the scientific advances performed in MIRIFISENS, in conjunction with the Exploitation board, to strengthen the exploitation plans. This workshop was co-located with the QCL 20th Anniversary workshop held at ETHZ, which allowed to increase its impact and gather top experts.
The second workshop, which is to be held at the end of the project, aims to demonstrate the results on the different MIRIFISENS potential application scenarios.
On November 30th, 2015, the PhD student involved in the MIRIFISENS project at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, D. Luis Jorge Orbe Nava defended his PhD thesis, supervised by Dr. Guillermo Carpintero (MIRIFISENS IP at UC3M).
The evaluation took place at 10:30 am, at the SALÓN DE GRADOS in the Auditorium "PADRE SOLER". On the evaluation committee were:
Prof. Tadao Nagatsuma, Osaka University
Prof. Sebastian Lourdudoss, KTH
Prof. Horacio Lamela, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
The low-noise laser driver developed by NEO Monitors (http://neomonitors.com), AS, Norway, within the MIRIFISENS FP7 project was employed to operate an ICL laser demonstrating a Compact CH4 sensor system
The paper, published on 5 January 2016 in the Applied Physics Letters journal, is titled "Compact CH4 sensor system based on a continuous-wave, low power consumption, room temperature interband cascade laser" by Lei Dong, Chunguang Li, Nancy P. Sanchez, Aleksander K. Gluszek, Robert J. Griffin, and Frank K. Tittel
The past March 5-7, 2015, the International workshop on opportunities and challenges in mid-infrared laser-based gas sensing (mirsens) was held in Würzburg, Germany, this event received a strong participation from the MIRIFISENS consortium.
