HIgh SPeed Antenna eNhanced Infrared Detector – Hispanid

Submission summary

In this project we aim to demonstrate a \lambda~10 µm infrared photodetector, working at room temperature with a bandwidth exceeding 50GHz. Such performances are attainable by the heterodyne detection platform that we intend to develop entirely on the InP material system. The core of the receiver consists in a Quantum Cascade Detector (QCD) coupled to a plasmonic nano-antenna. This technology opens unprecedented perspectives for mid-IR spectroscopy and free space optics. The consortium is composed of an academic partner (IEMN), an industrial lab (III-Vlab) and a start-up company (mirSense), ideally setup for a fast transformation of scientific results into cutting-edge products.
