A workshop dedicated to IR technology aims to focus on new developments related to detectors for commercial instrumentation, sources and filters, instrument subsystems, and commercial applications. The 4th International WORKshop on Infrared Technologies, held for the first time in the U.S., will take place at Arizona State University in Tempe, on November 8–9, 2017.

The workshop is a collaboration of Laser Components, MIRTHE+ Photonics Sensing Center at Princeton University, and the Center for Photonics Innovation at Arizona State University. Specific topics include fiber-coupled interband cascade lasers, InAsSbBi/GaAsSbBi heterostructures, operating temperature improvements for nBn detectors, laser-based trace gas sensing, and novel spectroscopy techniques.

Industry speakers are part of the program since the goal is to create a community conversation about industry challenges and breakthroughs, to generate professional connections and common interests, and to share thoughts, technical concepts, and scientific ideas.

“Industry professionals attending this event will get insights about the latest innovations and materials research with an emphasis on MWIR,” says Laser Components' Susan Wells, the Scientific Coordinator of the IR WORKshop. “Learning about these latest developments will help engineers design next generation instruments with improved performance that will better serve the market demands.”
