This report covers technologies and applications of Infrared Imaging Photodetectors, cameras and related systems.
For more than 50 years, Infrared Photodetectors have been at the heart of critical defense and security night vision systems. They have also been used in commercial products (such as cameras for thermography) as well as in military and civil satellites.
Most IR Photodetectors are cooled and require cryogenic devices to achieve operating temperature.
IR Photodetectors manufacturers have been facing new Challenges in the last years:
These challenges have caused manufacturers of IR Photodetectors and systems as well as their R&D partners to intensify efforts:
Photodetectors are still the preferred components for IR military systems due to limitations of thermal detectors in terms of sensibility, frame rate and wavelengths. Infrared Photodetectors manufacturers also managed to respond to the endless need for greater mission capabilities in the area of Night Vision.
Infrared Photodetectors are reaching new Opportunities in Defense but also in commercial and industrial markets (see figure below).
Along with market forecasts, this report details current and future trends in IR imaging Photodetectors and Systems.
