Supersize IR detector for space observation programmes

Supersize IR detector for space observation programmes
  Sofradir has announced it is developing its first very large format (2048x2048) 15µm-pitch infrared detector. The supersize IR detector is designed for future scientific space observation equipment and Extremely Large Telescopes (ELT) for ground observation aimed at tackling major scientific challenges.

IR receiver modules boost optoelectronics portfolio

IR receiver modules boost optoelectronics portfolio
For remote control in modern flat-panel TVs, three optical components — an IR receiver, red LED, and ambient light sensor — must either fit in the narrow frame or have an optical connection to the front from the back via a light pipe, which reduces the range for the IR receiver. The TVCastSMD package of the TSOP39xxxTR1 and TSOP59xxxTR1 series is designed to be mounted on a PCB with a side-view orientation. The board is then inserted into the frame, allowing for placement near the front of the frame for superior remote control performance. To simplify designs, the devices feature a photodetector, preamplifier circuit, and IR filter in a single four-pin epoxy package. Featuring a two-lens design for high sensitivity, the IR receivers offer typical irradiance down to 0.08mW/m² and 0.20mW/m², respectively. The components feature a supply voltage from 2.5V to 5.5V; very low supply current of 0.35mA typical for the TSOP39xxxTR1 series and 0.7mA for the TSOP59xxxTR1 series; transmission range up to 45 metres; and carrier frequencies from 36kHz to 56kHz. TSOP39xxxTR1 and TSOP59xxxTR1 series devices provide improved immunity against ambient light, are insensitive to supply voltage variations and ripple noise, and are offered in four automatic gain control (AGC) versions for short and long burst codes. All receivers are RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.

Pulsable IR emitters suitable for fit and forget applications

Pulsable IR emitters suitable for fit and forget applications
Fitted with a tungsten filament providing mid IR radiation to over 5µ, LASER COMPONENTS has introduced pulsable infrared emitters to its EP range. The device comes in a standard TO8 package and has an expected lifetime of three years which is suitable 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 infrared radiation.

IR receivers save space in consumer products

IR receivers save space in consumer products
To broaden its optoelectronics portfolio, Vishay Intertechnology has introduced two new series of miniature infrared (IR) receiver modules for IR remote control applications. To save space in consumer products, the Vishay Semiconductors TSOP39xxx and TSOP59xxx series devices are the industry's first native top-view IR receivers in a through-hole package.

Eye don't believe it: Iris scanner protects your home

Eye don't believe it: Iris scanner protects your home
The new SFH 4787S Infrared LED (IRED) for iris scanners illuminates the eyes so evenly that the software identifying the iris pattern now hardly needs to correct artefacts. Like its predecessor (SFH 4786S), its direction of emission is slightly angled rather than vertical, thus simplifying the design process by eliminating the usual mechanical aids.

High-sensitivity InAsSb device added to infrared detector

High-sensitivity InAsSb device added to infrared detector
Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has developed an uncooled InAsSb (indium arsenide antimonide) photovoltaic detector that offers high-speed and high-sensitivity detection of infrared light in the 3 to 11 micron wavelength range. The device, part number P13894-011MA, extends the upper limit of sensitivity of Hamamatsu’s InAsSb detectors from 8 microns to 11 microns, which will enable users to measure molecules that absorb longer wavelengths of light and therefore analyse more compounds with a single device.

Nanocubes simplify printing in colour and infrared

Nanocubes simplify printing in colour and infrared
Duke University researchers believe they have overcome a longstanding hurdle to producing cheaper, more robust ways to print and image across a range of colours extending into the infrared. As any mantis shrimp will tell you, there are a wide range of "colours" along the electromagnetic spectrum that humans cannot see but which provide a wealth of information.

Infrared LED emitter paves the way for food analytics

Infrared LED emitter paves the way for food analytics
Converter technology for infrared emitters is being used by Osram Opto Semiconductors to produce an LED that emits broadband infrared light in a wavelength range from 650-1,050nm. The main application is near-infrared spectroscopy, such as analysing food to measure fat, protein, water or sugar content.

Expanding production of infrared detectors and emitters

Expanding production of infrared detectors and emitters
  Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has announced the construction of a building no. 3 at its Miyakoda Factory to increase manufacturing capacity of compound semiconductor devices. This expansion is being done in anticipation of growing demand for detectors and emitters in various applications that utilise infrared light.
