InGaAs Products: Overview

Full Line of Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Sensing Products

Sensors Unlimited offers a complete line of products for image sensing in the short wave infrared (SWIR) portion of the light spectrum, manufacturing arrays and cameras that enable users to "see" beyond what the naked eye can detect. The standard product line operates in the SWIR wavelength range from 0.9 to 1.7 µm. However, Sensors Unlimited also produces extended wavelength arrays and cameras that allow the end user to "see" more than standard products. These product offerings include visible and SWIR response in two-dimensional arrays and cameras, allowing the same array to image from 0.4 to 1.7 µm; with this extended wavelength range, the end user will be able to "see" more than the standard product offerings. We also manufacture one-dimensional linear arrays and cameras with extended wavelength response; detection with these arrays and cameras is possible from 0.9 to 1.7 µm, 1.1 to 2.2 µm, and 1.1 to 2.6 µm.

Visible and shortwave infrared (SWIR) imagery under haze, mist, and light rain conditions

All Sensors Unlimited products are based on the Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs) crystal, the mainstay technology for imaging in the SWIR range. For more than 20 years, Sensors Unlimited, Inc. has been a pioneer and recognized industry leader in InGaAs technology.

Products include 2D cameras, linescan cameras, and linear arrays. Applications include covert surveillance, missile tracking, industrial process monitoring, laser beam profiling, scientific instrumentation and telecommunications.
