Technical Article: InGaAs SWIR Detectors — From Military To Medical Applications

Many complex imaging challenges have found practical solutions using shortwave infrared (SWIR) cameras and arrays based on indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) technology. SWIR detectors feature wavelength response from 0.9 to 1.7 µm and are advantageous because, unlike alternative infrared (IR) imaging technologies, they do not require expensive optics or bulky cooling systems for operation. InGaAs-based SWIR cameras have become effective and affordable "invisible" light cameras for a variety of applications, from military to medical. This article will focus on two specific applications that utilize advanced SWIR imaging: tracking and detecting lasers on the battlefield and identifying precursors to cancer development.
