1st Annual Conference of COST Action MP1204 was held jointly with the International Conference on Semiconductor Mid-IR Materials and Optics SMMO2013.

COST MP1204 Action "Tera-MIR Radiation: Materials, Generation, Detection and Applications" aims to stimulate substantial advances in MIR and THz radiation. It is intended to focus on the development and applications of MIR/THz materials, emitters and detectors and to beneficially exploit their common aspects within a synergetic approach. The conference was the first scientific meeting of the project participants.

The SMMO Conference is devoted to issues important for realization of semiconductor MIR emitters and detectors as well as their application for environmental control, medical diagnostics and security.

The programme of both events was separated, but SMMO Conference was open to COST audience and vice versa. We hope this conjunction gave participants a unique opportunity to share their experience and discuss wide range of subjects related to both MIR and THz optoelectronic devices.
