trinamiX launches Hertzstück™ NIR multi-pixel detector for 1 - 3 µm

Date Announced: 06 Feb 2019

  • PbS multi-pixel detector for wavelengths from 1 to 3 µm
  • Pixel numbers from 2 to 16 possible in variable designs
  • Highest detectivity at room temperature
  • High stability and long lifetime through thin-film encapsulation

During SPIE Photonics West 2019, trinamiX presents the Hertzstück™ infrared multi-pixel detector. The detectors consist of 2 to 16 pixels in line or matrix design. Hertzstück™ detectors cover the spectral range from 1 to 3 µm, which is highly relevant for applications in inline or mobile process analytics and quality control.

The Hertzstück™ PbS detectors are protected by a thin-film encapsulation which ensures a high stability and long lifetime. In addition, the detectors can directly be wire-bonded to PCBs. Hertzstück™ detectors do not require deep cooling as their detectivity at room temperature is above 1 ∙ 1011 cm·Hz½/W. To meet highest product quality standards, trinamiX guarantees 100% quality control before the delivery.
