“Sensing Across the Infrared Spectrum”
Preview: In applications from smart phones to industrial machine vision, the past decade has seen an exponentially increasing demand for larger format cameras with greater functionality. This is also true of infrared (IR) cameras used in commercial and astronomy systems, where in addition to format size, there is need for increased sensitivity, higher dynamic range, faster frame rates, and improved image processing across the entire infrared spectrum.
In this talk, we discuss the basic principles of an IR sensor and look at the short wave infrared (SWIR), mid-wave infrared (MWIR), long wave infrared (LWIR), and very long wave infrared (VLWIR) bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. Current commercial and astronomical applications will be addressed.
