IR detectors have been a part of our standard product range at LASER COMPONENTS for almost three decades. A distinction is made between sensors for the near infrared range (NIR) from 1.0 µm to 2.5 µm and those for the mid-infrared range (MIR) above 2.5 µm. IR detectors of all modes of operation are a part of our product portfolio and leave nothing to be desired.
Thermopiles are thermal detectors that detect constant light signals. Broadband-sensitive thermopiles are used in laser power measurement, absolute temperature measurement, and gas analyzers.
Detectors made of lead sulfide (PbS) and lead selenide (PbSe) function as photoresistors that detect radiation in the infrared (IR) spectral range. As a special feature, large surface area detectors up to 10 x 10 mm are available for delivery.
Photoconductive sensors made of mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) still offer the highest possible sensitivity in the middle IR range. A photovoltaic version is available.
IR diodes convert infrared radiation to a photocurrent. InGaAs, extended InGaAs, InAs, InSb, and MCT are all available for delivery.
Powerful IR arrays were developed for applications in NIR spectroscopy. Multiplex arrays made of PbS and PbSe are currently available.
