The group focuses its research activity on the study of interaction of infrared light with matter creating new detection and measuring principles, specific processing, theoretical and empirical quantitative analysis of radiatives phenomena, etc. LIR-InfraRed LAB activities are divided in two different environments: the scientific one is located within UC3M Physic Department, while the technological profile is placed in the University Science Park. Both are equipped with the newest IR devices for analysis and development.
Software simulation tools for predicting materials behavior under high temperatures.
Contactless non-destructive testing (NDT) based on infrared sensors is one of the key lines of reseach of LIR-InfraRed LAB.
Temperature measurement from a distance, without contact with the object to be measure; that is, how to translate electromagnetic radiation into temperature.
IR Spectroscopy can study almost any matter, regardless it physical state: liquids, dilutions, powders, flims, gas or surfaces are a few examples.
LIR-InfraRed LAB has participated in many national and international coordinated research projects. Given the transversality of infrared technology, the group contemplates being involved in various projects, both public and private funding.
