CAMARILLO, Calif. – Opto Diode Corp. in Camarillo, Calif., is introducing the BXT2S-38T two-stage cooled infrared detector for gas analysis, emissions monitoring, process control, and spectroscopy applications in harsh conditions.

The high-performance device has a nine-square-millimeter active area, and is available in a TO8 package with a thermo-electric cooler and flat sapphire window.

With a peak sensitivity wavelength between 4.3 and 4.5 microns, the lead selenide (PbSe) electro-optical device features typical detectivity of 3.5 by 1010, and resistance ranging from 1 to 15 milliohms. The minimum responsivity is 3.3 by 104 volts per Watt to a typical 5 by 104 volts per Watt, with a typical response time of 12 microseconds.

Opto Diode's BXT2S-38T infrared detector features cooled detector operation as low as -45 degrees Celsius, storage and operating temperatures range from -40 to 85 C.
