IR detectors minimise fire risks

IR detectors minimise fire risks
Infrared IR detectors are widely used to monitor industrial facilities for the presence of flames, ensuring that the risk of an outbreak of fire is minimised. A flame will flicker randomly at a rate between 1-20Hz when it is burned naturally, modulating any IR signal generated. Pyroelectric and lead sulphide detectors sense this modulated IR light and so can provide a warning of the presence of a flame. The signal to noise characteristic of the IR sensor determines the range and sensitivity of the flame detection instrument.

What can we expect from optical networks?

What can we expect from optical networks?
The public debate on the fibre optics roll out in Germany is strongly influenced by politics and the media. In a market that is developing so rapidly, the experts also need a forum to discuss their experiences. The fibre optics symposium held at LASER COMPONENTS provided an opportunity for this kind of exchange. On 7th December 2017, about 40 experts from different industries met at the company’s HQ in Olching.

Pyroelectric detectors for infrared spectrometers

Pyroelectric detectors for infrared spectrometers
Manufacturer of Deuterated L-Alanine doped Triglycine Sulphate (DLaTGS) pyroelectric detectors for infrared spectrometers, LASER COMPONENTS, supplies customers all over the world with these industrial grade detectors from its research and production facility in Florida. DLaTGS has several advantages over standard TGS, the material is doped with deuterium to raise the Currie temperature to 61°C, while doping with L-alanine prevents permanent depoling after excursions above the Currie temperature.

70mW single-chip UVC LED for sterilisation

70mW single-chip UVC LED for sterilisation
LG Innotek has introduced the world’s first 70 mW UVC LED, developed for sterilisation. LG Innotek once again set the benchmark for the design of UVC LEDs and rose to the challenge of achieving 70mW – the largest amount of power possible to date – out of a single element. The other parameters, such as If and Vf, have not changed from previous models: the improved light emission is based on new LED chip technology.

Real-time laser beam analysis allows for on-site monitoring

Real-time laser beam analysis allows for on-site monitoring
Slight changes in the beam profile of high-power laser systems can cause severe consequences. The Beam Waist Analyser Monitor (BWA-MON) by Haas Laser Technologies provides users with continuous real-time data covering the entire laser beam profile. Mistakes are detected as they happen and can be fixed before damage occurs. The BWA-MON is the only monitoring system without any moving parts.

Holographic production method supports infrared materials

Holographic production method supports infrared materials
Using a holographic production method allows for the use of a wide range of infrared materials which do not lend them self to the ruling production process. An interferometrically generated interference pattern is produced from monochromatic light and exposed onto the chosen substrate. Once developed, the resist has a regular sinusoidal profile that is vacuum aluminised at an oblique angle to create the array of parallel conductors.
