Infrared detectors in volume production

  • Lithium Tantalate detectors with high specific detectivity and stability
  • Highest specific detectivity (109 cm Hz1/2 W-1) achieved using extremely thin ion-beam etched elements
  • Extremely low noise and microphony
  • Optional absorber or silver black for uniform spectral sensitivity
  • Low temperature dependence, thermal compensation optional
  • Up to 4 spectral channels per detector

Customised infrared detectors
