About me

Introduction Established as a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center, MIRTHE develops mid-infrared (3-30 microns) optical trace gas sensor systems for applications in health, environment and homeland security. MIRTHE's goal is to work closely with industrial partners, academic institutions and government laboratories to commercialize affordable tunable-laser sources (especially Quantum Cascade lasers), detectors, and ultrasensitive sensor systems that are compact, portable and reliable. MIRTHE operates testbeds and technology demonstrations in environmental sensing and human health with prototype systems deployed in the US and internationally.
