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 detectors. Size, weight, and power are 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 a better performance compared to others. Water absorption increases significantly at 1,500nm. The spectral range from 1,500 - 1,580 is the key range popular for long distance communications. InGaAs and the MCT technology are mainly used to manufacture SWIR detectors. A SWIR image is similar to visible light, and photons are reflected or absorbed by an object, providing strong contrast needed for high-resolution imaging.
