20 November 2023 / 15:00 - 17:00 CET
EPIC Online Technology Meeting on New Mid-IR Developments for Novel Industrial Manufacturing
Online Event

The Mid-IR region (2.5um-15um) of the electromagnetic spectrum has attracted a lot of interest due to the fact that most molecules have absorption lines in this wavelength range. It has been already applied to sensing and spectroscopy, to perform precise and fast product analysis for detecting undesired vapours, pollutants, hazardous or flammable compounds, in particular for the chemical and refining industries. Imaging technologies in that spectral range have also demonstrated a high impact on steel, glass or cement manufacturing industries, where process monitoring and quality controls involve measurements in harsh environments with very high temperatures and smoky and dusty conditions. Laser processing of materials has also been explored recently with new sources in the Mid-IR region. In this meeting, we will discuss with the entire MidIR community about the new developments of laser sources and detectors, we will discover innovative applications and we will understand the challenges of the industries already using solutions in this spectral region.
