Photonics Spectra
Apr 2007
Sofradir of Veurey-Voroize, France, has signed a $4.2 million contract with NEC Toshiba Space Systems Ltd. of Yokohama, Japan, to supply the latter with bispectral long-wave infrared detectors. The custom-designed devices each comprise two mercury-cadmium-telluride focal plane arrays centered at 10.8 and 12 μm. They will be incorporated into a multispectral imaging radiometer, which the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency intends to use to monitor the Earth’s surface and atmosphere on a five-year mission to explore global environmental changes.

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...
