SWIR detectors have been used for night vision, heat detection, and scientific application since decades. Product development over the years has caused change in the technology, size, and performance of the detectors. The size, weight, and power are the key parameters which define the performance of SWIR detectors. Short Wave IR or short wave infrared detectors have wavelengths of 1μm – 4 μm. These detectors are meant to deliver better performance in comparison to others. Water absorption increases significantly at 1,500nm.

Spectral range from 1,500 - 1,580 is the key range popular for long distance communications. InGaAs and MCT technology is mainly used for the manufacture of SWIR detectors. SWIR image is similar to visible light, and the photons are reflected or absorbed by an object, providing strong contrast needed for high-resolution imaging.

Initially, SWIR Detectors were developed for the military and defence applications as it consists of imagers as well as detectors which detect objects in low light or total darkness using thermal radiations. Therefore, the detectors are used in various applications, such as people & motion detection, temperature measurement, fire & gas detection, and bio medical imaging. It consists of imagers as well as detectors which detect objects in low light or total darkness using thermal radiations. Thus, the night vision technologies with numerous applications are acting as a strong driver for SWIR market.
