Axetris Infrared Sources (IRS) offer micro-machined, electrically modulated thermal infrared emitters featuring true blackbody radiation characteristics, low power consumption, high emissivity and a long lifetime. The design is based on a resistive heating element integrated onto a thin dielectric membrane which is suspended on a micro-machined silicon structure. Infrared sources from Axetris are used in a number of gas detection applications in medical, industrial, environmental and automotive industries.
- True black body radiation (2 to 14 μm)
- High emissivity
- Fast electrical modulation (no chopper wheel needed)
- High modulation depth
- High electrical input to optical output efficiency
- Low power consumption
- Long lifetime
- Rugged MEMS design (passed the requirements of IEC 60721-3-7 Class 7M3, except for BaF2 and CaF2 windows
