Vigo is a leader in designing and developing photonic systems and components for various industries worldwide. We build tools for many sectors explicitly engineered to meet needs and overcome challenging problems.
Our detectors have found applications in many fields, such as research and development, healthcare, security and defense, industry, transportation, and environmental protection. Not only do we support and develop our solutions in well-known sectors, but we’re pioneering new possibilities of use for our systems.
Security and defense
Infrared detectors for space application
Several projects led by space agencies were built to expand our ability to observe many phenomena in space. Those projects are not limited only to the earth’s surface and earth’s atmosphere, which have a direct impact on human beings and the environment.
Infrared Detectors for Railway Transport Safety
Safety is the most important aspect of railway transport. Nevertheless every year there are at least few serious accidents in rail traffic.
Infrared Detectors For Spectroscopy
A variety of spectroscopic techniques is used in gas analysis and sensing – increasingly important fields, crucial in atmosphere monitoring, emission control.
Polish products have already performed well at research centers monitoring the composition of atmosphere, on factory and power plant chimneys, or in unmanned weather balloons.
The unbeatable speed and sensitivity of VIGO Photonics detectors make them useful in applications where the response time is a matter of safety of hundreds of people.
Industrial IR Sensor
The detectors are used for monitoring process gases in chemical, refining, power generation, food and aerosol production industries.
There are commercially available devices that utilize technologies developed by VIGO Photonics. Those are apparatuses for exhaled air analysis.
Laser Gas Leak Detection with Infrared
VIGO Photonics has developed a unique technology of manufacturing instruments for a quick and convenient detection of a 1 – 16 μm infrared radiation.
Plastic Sorting Using Mid IR Linear Detector Array
Development of effective methods for the mass production of plastic objects has revolutionized many industries, but what about mass recycling methods?
