WEBINAR – SHORT-WAVE INFRARED: THE DAWN OF A NEW IMAGING AGE?

Register now

“Short wave” refers to a portion of the infrared spectrum between 1 µm and 3 µm in wavelength. Short-wave infrared (SWIR) imagers based on InGaAs technology have found use in defense markets, for example, where they implement laser target designation and enhanced vision in harsh conditions, as well as in industrial applications such as semiconductor defect detection, package content inspection and inventory sorting.

Historically, SWIR imaging has been a niche market, with cost a key factor limiting broader adoption. InGaAs image sensors typically range in cost from a few thousand to more than ten thousand dollars. However, SWIR is now at a turning point, driven by the emergence of more cost-effective implementations based on quantum dots, germanium and various organic and other materials. The promise of lower-price image sensors has attracted interest in SWIR from consumer electronics and other high-volume applications. For this market growth potential to become a reality, however, the technology will also require further refinement in sensitivity, dark current, response time and other metrics.
