Production plant for PbS & PbSe detectors opened

LASER COMPONENTS Detector Group has opened a development division and production plant for PbS and PbSe detectors, expanding its R&D and production capabilities. Following preliminary testing by selected customers, the company's PbS/PbSe detectors have been approved, with production starting immediately.

LASER COMPONENTS is currently working with Arizona State University to produce innovative fabrication techniques, detector designs and automated production processes. The products will be introduced to the market at Photonics West 2015, which takes place from 7th to 12th February in San Francisco, USA.

Patrick Paul, General Manager of the group commented: "Since its founding in 1982, Laser Components has specialised in IR components. Its collective know-how is extensive. Customers now profit from our in-house production facilities worldwide. As we offer IR detectors that implement different technologies, it is possible for our customers to always find their solution. Gas measurements, for example, can be carried out using InGaAs, PbS/PbSe and pyroelectric detectors. Depending on what exactly needs to be measured, one technology is more suitable than the other. The advantage of individualised assistance can be offered by very few other manufacturers; we not only offer this help but also manufacture custom products."
