Pyroelectric single-element and multi-channel detectors PYROSENS

Our lithium tantalate pyroelectric single and multi-element infrared detectors are developed for use in gas analysis, spectroscopy, pyrometry and security applications.

Many types of infrared sensors manufactured in volume production are available. Beyond customized infrared sensors solutions are possible.

Pyroelectrical single-element and multi-channel detectors PYROSENS

Infrared detectors in volume production

  • Lithium tantalate detectors with high specific detectivity and excellent longterm stability
  • Highest specific detectivity (109 cm Hz1/2 W-1) achieved using extremely thin ion-beam etched elements
  • Extremely low noise and microphony
  • Optional absorber or black coating for uniform spectral sensitivity
  • Low temperature dependence, thermal compensation optional
  • Up to 4 spectral channels per detector

Thermal infrared emitters

In addition to infrared detectors suitable miniaturized infrared emitters are required for application in gas analysis and spectroscopy. For this, infrared emitters of the HISpower series are suitable:

  • Electrical pulsable thermal emitters mounted in TO8 package
  • Patended nanostructured radiation element with high emission
  • Wavelength between 1 µm and 16 µm
  • Various high-quality filter windows
  • Optional integrated reflector
