Novel SWIR Detectors and Imagers Approaching the Thermodynamic Detection Limit
Thu, Apr 9, 2015 1:00P EST
Join us for a FREE webinar - Thursday, April 9 1pm EDT Photon detectors are now at the heart of many modern scientific, medical, industrial and security systems. These detectors, whether single-element or imaging arrays, are often the performance bottleneck in such systems. While cooled midwave- and longwave-infrared (MWIR and LWIR) detectors have reached the thermodynamic limit of sensitivity, achieving such performance has remained elusive at shorter wavelengths.  New research shows that devices based on electron injection might be able to approach the thermodynamic limit...
