A research project aimed at advancing the range of silicon photonic applications is bringing together research leaders from the universities of Southampton, Sheffield, and York, the University Hospital Southampton, and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC). The project, titled Project MISSION (Mid-Infrared Silicon Photonic Sensors for Healthcare and Environmental Monitoring), recently received a £5.8 million grant from the United Kingdom’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
Key to the project will be the development of chip-scale sensors in the mid-infrared range, known as the “fingerprint region,” as it enables sensors to spot identifiers in biological and chemical molecules.
The team…READ MORE
