Uncooled IR sensor prototype for high sensitivity at room temperature. Ready for market uptake.

Light sensing technologies have attracted a lot of attention in recent years as they play a significant role in many fields and applications. The infrared region (IR) of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum is of great interest, allowing the study of various interactions between radiation and matter. However, as IR photons have significantly less energy than either visible or ultraviolet photons, cryogenic technology is required in order to reach the high sensitivities for mid- and far-IR observations. Scientists of the EU-funded NEMILIES project have previously developed an uncooled IR sensor prototype based on a nanoelectromechanical system, which can reach unprecedented sensitivity at room temperature. The goal now is to prepare the innovative technology for market uptake.
