Pulsable IR Emitters - EP Range

Mid IR Radiation to Beyond 5 µm


LASER COMPONENTS offers unique pulsable infrared emitters from our EP range, fitted with a tungsten filament providing mid IR radiation to over 5 microns. The device comes in a standard TO8 package and has an expected lifetime of three years which is ideal for fit and forget applications such as gas ­sensing. The tungsten filament achieves the highest temperature and power of any material and is therefore a cost-effective source of near infra-red radiation.

Glass and quartz glass envelopes are most commonly used in incandescent light bulbs but do not transmit well in the infra-red, sapphire is a much better choice. The EP emitter has a patented design that integrates a sapphire window with a tungsten filament in a sealed metallic package, providing a robust source for spectroscopic instruments.

Tungsten filaments are provided in a variety of sizes to accommodate various frequency and modulation requirements. Operating temperatures up to 1900 K are standard with the EP source, all the devices include a gold plated parabolic reflector and an inert gas backfill.
