Final Report - NEMIS (New mid-infrared sources for photonic sensors)

Project ID: 031845
Funded under: FP6-IST


This is the final activity report of the 'New mid-infrared sources for photonic sensors' (Nemis) project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, Nemis aimed to develop compact and packaged vertical-cavity surface-emitting semiconductor laser diodes (VCSEL) for the 2-3.5 µm wavelength range. A pilot photonic sensing system for trace gas analysis was demonstrated using these new sources.

The report describes the development process of electrically pumped VCSELs. The introductory chapters outline the project's objectives, the contractors involved, the work carried out and the main results. The later chapters explain how the results were applied, including their use in the detection and analysis of important and/or toxic gases.
