Workshop on Air Quality Monitoring related to Energy Extraction held August 9, 2013
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...

MIRTHE for a second time was invited by the SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, to organize a workshop on speeding commercialization of mid-infrared (mid-IR) technologies for defense and security applications at the Defense, Security, and Sensing (DSS) conference, the most important scientific conferences on optics, imaging, and sensing for defense, security, and industry, held in Baltimore, MD from April 29-May 3. Panelists from U.S. government, venture capital community, and industry discussed ways to speed the commercialization and deployment of early-stage Defense and Homeland Security applications focused on mid-infrared technologies.
