Idea selected by the Microtech Booster (5th loop): GeSn Photodetectors on Si Substrate for Gas Detection

This new project selected by the Microtech Booster ( is focused on sensitivity tests of an innovative, low cost SWIR photodetector for gas sensing applications. The feasibility study will be performed with the contribution of high-class entities such as AXETRIS (spectrometry), VERTILAS (laser) and EPFL (photodetector).

A broadband light source, a multipath gas chamber with […]

Innovation Cheque

The Swiss Innovation Council “Innosuisse” has approved our funding application entitled “MoCA”. This preliminary study will be performed with HE-Arc to demonstrate the feasibility of an effective photon detection at short-wave
infrared (SWIR) wavelengths for smartphones and consumer (AR/VR) applications. The device set-up basically comprises a germanium-tin (GeSn) single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) array as receiver and […]
