The Advantages and Disadvantages of Shortwave Infrared Imagers

Presentation will begin: Thursday, July 21, 2022 - 10:25 AM EDT
Presented by: Martin H. Ettenberg, Princeton Infrared Technologies

Shortwave infrared (SWIR) imagers have evolved significantly in the last five years as high resolution and smaller pitch have become available. These improvements have come in addition to the development of newer materials and the availability of wider wavelength ranges, which allow many more use cases for SWIR devices, including in linear and area arrays and cameras. Ettenberg provides an overview of the current state of the art in SWIR technology and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the various technologies in different applications. These technologies will have wider-ranging system effects that users should be aware of before purchasing a SWIR detector/camera.
