Imaging the SWIR spectral range from 800 nm-1.7um is covered by InGaAs focal plane arrays. These differ from CCD or CMOS sensors in both material and architecture.
A focal plane array is a 2 dimensional photodiode array comprising of a substrate with an InGaAs absorption layer bump bonded to a readout integrated circuit or ROIC. Each of these bump bonds constitutes the effective pixel.
We offer both scientific grade cameras from Teledyne Princeton Instruments and unique logarithmic cameras from New Imaging Technologies.
