LC Series Arrays designed for broad wavelength range, multi-channel spectrometer designs

Princeton, NJ — Sensors Unlimited, Inc., part of Goodrich Corporation, is a high-volume manufacturer of the recently introduced Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Linear Photodiode LC-Series Array. The new LC array extends well beyond other near-infrared linear arrays to deliver high sensitivity for imaging applications from 0.9 microns all the way out to 2.6 microns. The device offers instrument designers several advantages: no moving parts, easy integration into existing systems, fast signal readout, and real-time measurement results for an attractive alternative to FTIR-NIR (Fourier Transform Infrared-Near-Infrared) Interferometry.

The rugged and reliable LC Series, shipping now in OEM volumes, is ideal for applications such as industrial process control, biomedical analysis, plastics recycling, and NIR spectroscopy. The new InGaAs linear photodiodes with the extended 2.6 micron wavelength array also offer wider spectral range and improved functionality over FTIR-NIR instrumentation.

Developed specifically for broad-wavelength-range, multi-channel spectrometer designs, the SU256LSC-2.6T2 detector array features 256 elements of extended response InGaAs material. The LC InGaAs photodiode array is vibration-resistant, easy to use, and has a large active area, 50 micron x 250 micron pixel size. LC package design includes a two-stage TEC and thermally-optimized materials for multi-channel spectrometers that require high sensitivity, low power consumption, and long-term stability.

Goodrich's Princeton, NJ team, Sensors Unlimited Inc., has pioneered the design and production of NIR and SWIR cameras and systems utilizing advanced Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs) imaging technology for industrial, commercial, military, agricultural and scientific markets.

Goodrich Corporation, a Fortune 500 company, is a global supplier of systems and services to aerospace, defense, and homeland security markets. With one of the most strategically diversified portfolios of products in the industry, Goodrich serves a global customer base with significant worldwide manufacturing and service facilities.
