Application notes for Infrared Detectors

In the VIGO IR detector cataloque several application notes are included. These are listed here separetely and are avaiable as download below.

1) Glossary of Terms

2) TE cooling

3) Optical Immersion

4) Preamplifiers for IR-Detectors

5) IR detector packages & windows

6) Heat Sinking

The standard detector programm contains 4 different housings:

For the uncooled detectors: BNC, PEM und TO-39

For the TE-cooled detectors: TO-8

The links lead you to the dimension sketches with position of the detector chip and the FOV (field of view)

6) Precautions of Use

These notes include advices for the safe use of the detector. Especially the values of the damage threshold are to respect.
