For Spectroscopy and Interferometry ApplicationsPRINCETON, N.J., May 14, 2008 -- Sensors Unlimited Inc. said its new LC series shortwave infrared (SWIR) linear photodiode array extends beyond other near-infrared (NIR) linear arrays to deliver high sensitivity for imaging applications from .9 to 2.6 µm.
The device offers instrument designers several advantages: no moving parts, easy integration into existing systems, fast signal readout, and real-time measurement results for an attractive alternative to FTIR-NIR (Fourier transform infrared-NIR) interferometry, said SUI, which is part of Goodrich Corp.
The rugged and reliable LC series, shipping now in OEM volumes, is ideal for applications such as industrial process control, biomedical analysis, plastics recycling, and NIR spectroscopy, the company said. The new InGaAs linear photodiodes with the extended 2.6-µm wavelength array also offer wider spectral range and improved functionality over FTIR-NIR instrumentation.
Developed specifically for broad-wavelength-range, multichannel spectrometer designs, the SU256LSC-2.6T2 detector array features 256 elements of extended response InGaAs material. The LC InGaAs photodiode array is vibration-resistant, easy to use, and has a large active area, 50 x 250-µm pixel size.
LC package design includes a two-stage thermoelectric cooler and thermally-optimized materials for multichannel spectrometers that require high sensitivity, low power consumption, and long-term stability.
