Project: Radiative Optoelectronic Components Vulnerability

To study and predict radiation induced degradation in optoelectronic devices with particular interest in image sensors based on APS (active pixel technology) as well as InGaN, GaP and AlInGaP semiconductor materials.

Experts in Optoelectronic Testing

Key elements:

  • First project within EDA
  • Expand business model to avionics
  • Improve ATN knowhow on radiation (Neutrons)

Project: Britespace

Carbon and climate observation of planet Earth; need of development of a laser source to monitor greenhouse gases in future space missions.

Semiconductor laser

Proof of Concept: A semiconductor laser as transmitter for monitoring greenhouse gases in future Earth Observation Space missions.
