MEMS emitters from Cal Sensors deliver pulsed IR light

MEMS emitters from Cal Sensors

A family of MEMS emitters is designed with patented, thin-membrane, thermo-resistive material. The nanostructure carbon membranes operate over the 1 to 20 μm IR spectrum. Delivering quasi-blackbody pulsed IR light, they offer higher modulation frequencies up to 100 Hz and temperatures (750°C) to maximize s/n performance for medical, environmental, and process control applications.

PRESS RELEASE

CAL SENSORS TO LAUNCH NEW MEMS EMITTER AT PITTCON 2013
 
SANTA ROSA, CA – Cal Sensors (www.calsensors.com) will introduce a new MEMs emitter as part of its new product line of infrared (IR) sources at PITTCON, booth 4103, held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia from March 17-21.


Applying MEMs technology, these emitters are designed with patented, thin-membrane, thermo-resistive material. The nanostructure carbon membranes operate over the 1 to 20 micron infrared spectrum. Delivering quasi-black body pulsed IR light, these sources offer higher modulation frequencies (up to 100 Hz) and temperatures (750°C) to maximize signal to noise performance for a broad range of applications including medical, environmental and process control. The emitters require minimal input power, making them particularly well suited for portable applications.
