Enhancing the optical sensing properties of semiconductors in the field of medical diagnostics, photovoltaics and light harvesting

The goal of the GEMINI project is to introduce a paradigm shift in optical sensing. This is done by engineering group-IV semiconductors to enable strong interaction between mid-infrared radiation and specific molecules of interest. The technology developed by the project may find important applications in a variety of fields, including medical diagnostics and photovoltaics.
