Lead selenide and lead sulfide detectors with electronics integrated
into their industry-standard compact TO-8 hermetically sealed packages have been
announced by Cal Sensors Inc. The IDA (integrated detector assembly) infrared detectors
cover the 1.0- to 5.5-μm infrared region and provide sensitivity of 1.5E10
Jones. They are available in 1- and 2-mm2 sizes. The company says that integrating
the system electronics into the package expands the measurement dynamic range, provides
greater resolution for low-signal detection and reduces the footprint by up to 50%.
Applications include industrial and medical gas analysis, automobile and aviation
emissions measurement, environmental monitoring, infrared spectroscopy, thermal
imaging and flame detection.
