Uncooled infrared detector operates in 3 to 11μm range

January 16, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has developed an uncooled InAsSb (indium arsenide antimonide) photovoltaic detector that offers high-speed and high-sensitivity detection of infrared light in the 3 to 11 micron wavelength range.

The part number P13894-011MA extends the upper limit of sensitivity of the company's InAsSb detectors from 8 microns to 11 microns. This allows users to design spectrometers with the capacity to measure molecules that absorb longer wavelengths of light, hence analysing more compounds with a single device.
