The SWIR subband presents a growing interest for military, commercial and space applications such as non-destructive test, spectrometry, hyperspectral instruments. In addition to the interest of this specific waveband, these detectors present the advantage of a combination of high performance with the use of thermoelectrical cooler for cooled and uncooled applications. Thus, in order to answer the different market needs for these types of applications, Sofradir has developed different IR detectors in the SWIR waveband. Sofradir offers a 2.5μm cut-off operating around 200K, a 2μm cut-off operating at 250K and a 1.6μm cut-off operating at ambient temperature. The main characteristics and performance results are given as well as the main trade-offs achieved for large quantity productions.
