Feb 2009
WOBURN, Mass., Feb. 12, 2009 – Agiltron Inc., a manufacturer of fiber optic and infrared imagers and detection products, has announced that it has expanded its detector offerings by acquiring privately held SensArray Infrared for an undisclosed amount.

SensArray, of Burlington, makes IR detectors for spectroscopic and analytical applications. It has made standard and customized lead selenide (PbSe) and lead sulfide (PbS) infrared detectors and infrared arrays for more than 20 years.

Agiltron, whose home base is north of Boston, makes optical switches, variable optical attenuators, high-power optical components, optical polarization and time controls, and molded infrared lenses. It has about 100 employees. 

Besides its optical product operation, Agiltron has two new subsidiaries: Thermaltron, for microelectromechanical systems-based sensors, and Nanotron, for new materials-based products.

Agiltron said the acquisition allows the company to expand its offering of IR detector products to the 1- to 5.5-µm range.

It will continue to support all current SensArray products, Agiltron said.

GLOSSARY
detector
1. A device designed to convert the energy of incident radiation into another form for the determination of the presence of the radiation. The device may function by electrical, photographic or visual means. 2. A device that provides an electric output that is a useful measure of the radiation that is incident on the device.
optical
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
