Project Overview
Project Overview
The SensHy project focuses on novel photonic gas sensors for the detection of hydrocarbons. Two particular challenging applications with significant market potential are investigated within the project. In order to reach these goals significant challenges have to be overcome in various fields ranging from epitaxial semiconductor growth via laser design and processing to mid infrared sensor development. For this the consortium comprises renowned research groups, academic and industrial partners from all across Europe.
