Pyroelectric Infrared Detectors
Microwatt Applications, LLC supplies standard and custom devices incorporating many element sizes, window selections, electronic configurations, and packaging.
Non-Standard, and Heritage IR replacement Infrared Detectors available.
TE Coolers can often be incorporated.
DLATGS Pyroelectric Detectors
DLATGS Pyroelectrics are the highest performing thermal detectors combining broad spectral sensitivity, high D*, with frequency response. The DLATGS crystal used to produce the sensing element is the latest development in pyroelectric materials. Its polarization is “locked in” thus no longer requiring a poling voltage to maintain the output signal level. The Curie temperature is also raised to be above 60 C.
Lithium Tantalate Pyroelectric Detectors
Lithium Tantalate (LTO) Pyroelectrics are the often the best compromise between cost and performance of the common pyroelectrics. With a very high Curie temperature and a low temperature coefficient of response (<~.2%/ deg C. ) they can operate over all commercial, industrial and aerospace environments. This permanently poled rugged crystalline material is also non hygroscopic and can be operated in windowless configurations. Available in many active areas and electronic configurations these thermal detectors combine broad spectral response and high D* at an affordable price.
