Increased efficiency with infrared thermography

Increased efficiency with infrared thermography
Since the arrival of the personal computer, the electronics market has been subject to a constant, overarching pressure from end-users to miniaturise components while maximising performance. However, meeting these twin demands presents a challenge: how does one accurately test tiny components for both product faults and overall quality control when most of these electronics are too small for conventional diagnostic tools?

Infrared filters designed for vehicle exhaust emissions

Infrared filters designed for vehicle exhaust emissions
LASER COMPONENTS specialises in the supply of infra-red filters and coatings. These optical components can be used in the analysis of vehicle exhaust emissions using Non Dispersive Infrared spectroscopy (NDIR). The coatings used in narrow band pass filters are made up of several layers which create a complicated process of destructive and constructive interference, isolating a narrow region of the IR spectrum.

Increasing efficiency of heating for semiconductor production

Increasing efficiency of heating for semiconductor production
At the SEMICON Taiwan exhibition in Taipei at the beginning of September, Heraeus Noblelight will present black.infrared, a global first for the semiconductor and photovoltaics industry. The innovative infrared system functions according to a completely new emitter principle.

Lead salt infrared detectors uncovered

Lead salt infrared detectors uncovered
LASER COMPONENTS is a manufacturer of lead salt infrared detectors. They supply customers all over the world with these industrial grade thermal detectors from their research and production facility in Arizona. These detectors work on the principle that photons incident on the polycrystalline thin film promote electrons across the bandgap increasing the conductivity of the material, in turn decreasing the resistance of the substance.

Conversion screen for visualisation of near infrared light

Conversion screen for visualisation of near infrared light
An extensive range of conversion screens and cards are offered for both high and low power applications, over discreet wavelength ranges from 400nm to 20um. The latest addition to the range, the LDT-007BN is suitable for the detection of low and medium power infra-red light from IR laser diodes, low power Nd:YAG lasers and IR LEDs. There is no need to optically charge the phosphor, and it will not lose its sensitivity to stimulation with use.

Pyroelectric detectors suitable for infrared spectrometers

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

Infrared detectors suitable for fit and forget applications

Infrared detectors suitable for fit and forget applications
LASER COMPONENTS has introduced industrial grade thermal detectors, from their research and production facility in Arizona. These detectors work on the principle that photons incident on the polycrystalline thin film, promote electrons across the bandgap increasing the conductivity of the material, in turn decreasing the resistance of the substance.

Pyroelectric detectors recombines beams and directs sample

Pyroelectric detectors recombines beams and directs sample
Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometry has become a well-established alternative to dispersive spectrophotometry, using prisms or gratings. An FTIR interferometer splits one beam of light from a broadband source into two using a beam splitter, transmitting the first beam to a fixed mirror and the second to a mirror that is translated back and forth very precisely so that the paths of the two beams are different.

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.
