Mid-infrared detector operates at room temperature

A paper published in the journal Optics Express, from The Optical Society (OSA), describes a type of portable, field-friendly, mid-infrared detector that operates at room temperature. Room-temperature operation, notes Andreas Harrer of the TU-Wien Center for Micro- and Nanostructures, Austria and the first author of the paper, "is essential for detectors to be energy-efficient enough for portable and handheld applications.

Panasonic releases 2nd gen Grid-EYE infrared array sensors

Panasonic releases 2nd gen Grid-EYE infrared array sensors
Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems Europe has released its much improved and accurate 2nd gen Grid-EYE infrared array sensors. The high gain (AMG8833 and AMG8834) and low gain types (AMG8853 and AMG8854) now benefit from an improved Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference (NETD) of 0.16°C at 10Hz and of 0.05°C at 1Hz.

Improved near-infrared sensitivity of CCD image sensors

Improved near-infrared sensitivity of CCD image sensors
Enhancing imaging performance in demanding industrial applications, ON Semiconductor has improved the Near-InfraRed (NIR) sensitivity of CCD image sensors. The 8MP KAI-08052 image sensor, the first device in ON Semiconductor’s CCD portfolio to leverage this new technology, provides up to twice the sensitivity in NIR wavelengths as the company’s standard Interline Transfer CCD pixel design.

Chemical sensing technique uses near-infrared light

Chemical sensing technique uses near-infrared light
Researchers from the University of Houston have reported a technique to determine the chemical composition of materials using near-infrared light. The work could have a number of potential applications, including improving downhole drilling analysis in the oil and gas industry and broadening the spectrum of solar light that can be harvested and converted to electricity, said Wei-Chuan Shih, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at UH and lead author of a paper describing the discovery published in Nano Letters.

Material can convert near-infrared beam into visible light

Material can convert near-infrared beam into visible light
  A team of researchers working at Philipps-Universität Marburg, in Germany has created a kind of material that is able to convert a near-infrared laser beam into a visible beam of light. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes the material, how it was made and the possible ways it might be used.

Tunable lasers to improve infrared spectroscopy

A development from Northwestern University's Manijeh Razeghi could be another tool for protecting our borders. Supported by the Department of Homeland Security, Razeghi's lab has created a broad-band tunable infrared laser that has implications for the detection of drugs and explosives. The robust, all solid-state laser can be rapidly tuned to emit in the wavelength range that encompasses the critical "fingerprint" region where most molecular features are absorbed and identified through infrared sensing.

Conversion cards for infrared radiation

Conversion cards for infrared radiation
Two new converter cards for infrared radiation have been added the range of conversion screens available from Laser Components. The LDT-008TL can be used to convert laser radiation from 800 to 1,600nm into red visible light (except for the incident range of 950 to 980nm for which it emits in green).
