640×512 (15 µm) MWIR FPAEagle

VIGO Photonics S.A. achieves the state of the art performance for the InAs/InAsSb superlattice-based cooled MWIR focal plane array 640×512 format. FPA’s are developed with VIGO Photonics S.A. 15 μm pixel technology from epitaxy substrate to final encapsulation of detector housing. The MWIR FPA is a reliable detection module designed for demanding applications. Special design provide easy mechanical and thermal integration with the target device. Planar window work with a precisely defined spectral range of MWIR sourced which has to be detected.
