4th Annual Conference of COST Action MP1204
& SMMO2016 Conference

From 21 to 24 March 2016, Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (Portugal) welcomes 4th Annual Conference of COST Action MP1204 and the International Conference on Semiconductor Mid-IR and THZ Materials and Optics SMMO2016.

MP1204 is a COST Action "TERA-MIR Radiation: Materials, Generation, Detection and Applications". The conference is a annual progress reporting meeting of the Action participants.
SMMO Conference is a well established scientific event devoted to issues related to realization and developments of semiconductor MIR and THz devices as well as their application for environmental control, medical diagnostics and security.

We hope that the conjunction of these two scientific events will give you a unique opportunity to share your experience and discuss wide range of subjects related to both MIR and THz optoelectronic devices.


COST Action MP1204

The main objective of the action TERA-MIR Radiation: Materials, Generation, Detection and Applications is to advance novel materials, concepts and device designs for generating and detecting THz (0.3 THz to 10 THz) and Mid-IR (10 THz to 100 THz) radiation using semiconductor, superconductor, metamaterials and lasers and to beneficially exploit their common aspects within a synergetic approach.

SMMO Conference

The International Conference on Semi- conductor Mid-IR Materials and Optics SMMO brings together scientists working in the area of Mid-IR optoelectronics. The SMMO conference provides a forum to discuss material issues and topics important for the realization of semiconductor emitters and detectors as well as their application. This year the conference is extended to cover also THz optoelectronics.
