Infrared Imagers

Photon etc IR Cameras

Extending the boundaries of industrial imaging, Photon etc has developed affordable SWIR cameras sensitive from 800nm to 2.9µm. Using a sensitive InGaAs or HgCdTe (MCT) FPA, ZephIR™ collects images at an astounding 340 frame-per-second rate while reaching unrivalled low noise levels with the integration of a four-stage TE cooler. The BOREA™ line uses a Stirling micro-cooler and has lower noise levels than its TE-cooled competitors. Initially designed for demanding faint flux applications such as hyperspectral imaging, Photon etc's cameras are well-suited for spectroscopy, astronomy or industrial applications in quality control and sorting.

Dark current is a critical parameter with short-wave infrared (SWIR) cameras. Very careful attention must be paid to the cooling method used to optimize this parameter. Multiple cooling technologies are available, each having certain benefits and drawbacks. In the new ZephIR line of SWIR cameras, Photon etc. uses a four stage thermoelectric (TE4) air-cooled system to enhance the sensitivity of its imaging sensors. In this white paper, a short introduction to thermoelectric (TE) cooling is presented, as well as a comparison with other available cooling methods.
