PbSe Lead Selenide IR TE Cooled Detector - PB50 - Detect Radiation between 1 and 5.2 microns
24 Jan 2019
LASER COMPONENTS is a world leading manufacturer of lead salt infrared detectors. From our research and production facility in Arizona we supply customers all over the world with these industrial grade thermal detectors.
These detectors work on the principle that photons incident on the polycrystalline thin film promote electrons across the bandgap increasing the conductivity of the material in turn decreasing the resistance of the substance. The polycrystalline lead selenide (PbSe) units detect radiation in the wavelength range between 1 and 5.2 microns.
The devices are manufactured in standard TO style packages and have long expected lifetimes making them ideal for fit and forget applications such as gas sensing, surface inspection and flame detection. The PB50 device is a collection of TE cooled polycrystalline biased single element PbSe detectors that operate at room temperature with a 20% cut off at 4.9 microns and a maximum element size of 6 x 6 mm2.
