Infrared products

IR detectors are the main focus of this webinar — in particular, their structure, operation, and optoelectronic characteristics. The webinar will also discuss the process of selecting a suitable detector in the context of a given application.

Mid-infrared measurements have recently become a hot topic in the photonics industry and for good reason: so much valuable information lies within interactions with longer wavelengths. Capability, cost, and complexity make selecting the proper components a tough balancing act - this presentation aims to give some insight into navigating this space.

A great deal of information about the physical world, from cosmos to DNA, comes to us in the form of infrared radiation (IR). In addition, man-made systems, such as automotive LiDAR, thermal-vision cameras, or communication networks, rely on IR for successful and optimal operation.

Are we seeing what we see? We've been relying on visible light to differentiate objects and identify items, but the surface and its color sometimes could confuse us. Beyond the visible spectrum, many components are transparent in SWIR light that are opaque in visible light. SWIR brings out details beneath the surface you would otherwise miss.
