09 July 2014 Pre-commercial prototype development project

Prof. Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh to lead project through Valtec funding scheme. ACCIÓ, the agency for Business Competitivity of the Generalitat de Catalunya (Government of Catalonia), has granted funding for the pre-commercial prototype development of a project led by Prof. Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh through the Valtec funding scheme.

ICREA Prof. Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh, leader of the Optical Parametric Oscillators Group at ICFO will lead the project with the aim of bringing state-of-the-art laser innovations closer to the market. The project consists of building a pre-commercial prototype while assessing its commercial viability. Prof. Ebrahim-Zadeh aims to accomplish a quick transfer of this technology to the market through ICFO spin-off company Radiantis, a world supplier of OPO technology.

The core of this solution is a patented ultrashort fs cascade OPO technology that permits ultra-tunable systems in the deep-infrared region, covering for the first time, the spectral range of 4-12 microns. This incredible development opens up a full range of applications in the security & defence, medical and environmental fields.
