INTEGRATION OF THERMOELECTRICALLY COOLED INFRARED DETECTORS OR OPERATING AT AMBIENT TEMPERATURE WITH A BROADBAND RECEIVING SYSTEM (INTIR)

Agreement no. PBS2/B3/20/2013
Duration:  01/10/2013 – 30/11/2015
Overall budget: PLN 3,759,018.00
Eligible costs: PLN 3,759,018.00
Co-funding: PLN 3,529,963.00
Coordinator: Warsaw University of Technology
Project partner: VIGO System S.A.

The objective of the project is to develop a technology for integrating medium and far infrared detectors with broadband electronics in miniature casings and to create a new range of high-performance detection modules, intended to use in a wide range of applications in modern optoelectronic devices. For the construction of such modules, new detector structures are developed and manufactured, as well as appropriate housings and integrated amplifiers are selected for them. Module design is based on electrical measurements of detector structures, amplifiers and their connections, supported by electromagnetic and circuit simulations. The purpose of developing a new technology is to progress in terms of functionality and reliability in relation to the modules currently used, and consequently to industrial implementation.
