Laser Components offer pyroelectric detectors designed to create an electric signal due to temperature changes in the chip. Deuterated Lanthanum α Alanine doped TriGlycine Sulphate (DLaTGS) detectors specifically exhibit the most effective pyroelectric effect known. Although there are many other possible uses, the major application for these detectors is FTIR spectroscopy.
The D31 and LT31 series of DLaTGS or thin LTO detectors are high-end single channel devices operating in voltage mode with an integrated JFET. Features for these devices include wide spectral coverage from UV to LWIR, a modular design, and device options for low and high speeds.
