Sofradir to Supply Large-Format IR Detectors

Photonics Spectra
Jan 2007
Sofradir, based in Chatenay-Malabry, France, has signed a $1.3 million contract with a global supplier of electro-optic space and defense systems under which it will supply large-format, 30-μm-pixel-pitch short-wave-IR detectors for hyperspectral applications in airborne platforms. Sofradir’s off-the-shelf Saturn shortwave-IR HgCdTe focal plane array has a monolithic format measuring 1000 × 256 μm, a detector spectral response of 0.8 to 2.5 μm and an operating temperature of up to 200 K. It will be used in the initial testing phase of the customer’s hyperspectral system.


GLOSSARY
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...
