Every year SPIE Photonics West, North America's largest optics and photonics exhibition,
draws thousands of visitors and exhibitors who showcase their newest technologies and applications. During this year’s exhibition held in San Francisco, CA, February 4-6, 2014, a prototype of a Faraday Rotation Spectrometer for Real-time Detection of Nitric Oxide (NO) Isotopes in Human Breath
attracted considerable attention when it was demonstrated at the MIRTHE booth. It was an excellent opportunity to present a technology, which has progressed from laboratory R&D to field-readiness for the real-world applications to Photonics West attendees. Preliminary tests of NO isotopes detection in breath, urine, and blood for metabolic studies have been performed in the Cleveland Clinic, demonstrating great promise for future applications in noninvasive medical diagnostics.

The Center for Mid-IR Technologies for Health and the Environment had its 8th Annual Industry Day Workshop on Friday, August 9, 2013. The event titled, "Workshop on Air Quality Monitoring related to Energy Extraction" was held at the Frick Chemistry Laboratory, Princeton University. This workshop was the first time that the center dedicated an entire day to the exploration of an application area, and in a field outside MIRTHE's typical industrial focus. The workshop, featuring distinguished speakers from academia, government, industry and the investment communities, was divided into three sessions -- including a roundtable panel discussion moderated by Ralph Taylor-Smith of Battelle Ventures, and co-chair of MIRTHE's Investment Focus Group. The event provided valuable insights into potential air quality monitoring needs and applications in the energy sector for MIRTHE. Read more...
