The MIR-BOSE project is coming to an end in September 2021.
There has been tremendous scientific works in the project for understanding the physics in polaritonics at a deeper level, experimentally demonstrating a mid-IR polaritonic LED under optical pumping, developing a quantum theory for polaritonic LEDs and lasers in the mid-IR (and more … see the list of around 30 articles in our Publications‘ page).
The demonstration of polaritonic Mid-IR laser modulation allows the development of standalone and broadband devices with control of the beam amplitude and/or phase at ultra-fast rates in Mid-IR.
And new results will be announced once they are officially published !!
The European SPIE conference took place in Warsaw in September 2017. In the Industry Events, Tematys presented a review of the mid-IR sensing marketplace and outlined a growing market for mid-IR devices.

The MIR-BOSE consortium organized a workshop on September 17, 2019. This workshop consisted of a focused Session on Polaritonics and Strong-Coupling Phenomena planned during the conference ITQW 2019 (Infrared Terahertz Quantum Workshop 2019).
The focused session brought together researchers working on various issues related to polaritons and strong-coupling phenomena in the infrared and terahertz ranges to spark cross-fertilization and collaboration. It included an invited tutorial talk providing an introduction to students and researchers new to the field. The Session was made up of a small number of invited talks (30 minutes), and several contributed talks (15-20 minutes).

We are pleased to announce that the MIR-BOSE project has started! The kick-off meeting was held at the Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (C2N) in Orsay, on 10th March 2017. All the partners gathered to discuss the items of agenda of the project. Find out more about the partners of the consortium.
