SANTA ROSA, Calif., June 10, 2016 — Grauling Research Inc. has announced the IR-ISE photoconductive IR sensor coating to enhance the performance and efficiency of IR sensor. The novel thin-film coating was developed for use with lead sulfide (PbS) and lead selenide (PbSe) sensors. The coating designs can reduce the surface reflection of incident radiation by utilizing environmentally rugged, single- or multilayered thin-film coatings. In many applications, the coating also seals and protects the device, eliminating the need for glass encapsulation. In applications where glass encapsulation is no longer needed, the new IR-ISE reduces the size and weight of the photodetector and lessens the amount of time, materials, and labor costs needed for assembly.
