The aim of the project is to develop technology of the novel type of for the mid-IR radiation detectors based on type-II superlattices as well as the development of technology of InP based quantum cascade lasers. The devices will be optimized for applications in molecular spectroscopy and detection of trace gas amounts.

The result of the project will be the development of components for the construction of the mentioned devices and the creation of the basis for their implementation. The additional outcome of the project will be the development of a methodology and appropriate tools for designing superlattice detectors and cascade lasers for a given wavelength, which will allow for flexible response to market needs in this area. The research and application works are extremely innovative and apply elements that are not available for sale, and which are important for many sectors of the economy.
