The Advantages of Longwave Infrared Strained Layer Superlattice Thermal Cameras

SLS detectors take LWIR cameras to a whole new level!

Screen Shot -Stop-motion image of inflating airbagOnline  –This new type of detector material brings FLIR’s thermal infrared camera performance in line with their read-out integrated circuit (ROIC) and camera electronic counterparts.

The integration of Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detectors into commercially available thermal infrared cameras offers a new LWIR solution with significant improvements in speed, temperature range, uniformity, and stability that costs less than analogous detector materials.

In a new online article The Advantages of Longwave Infrared Strained Layer Superlattice Thermal Cameras”, FLIR’s tech staff point out: Continue reading

Efficiently detect methane leaks

A Free Application Note By Telops!

Quebec City, Canada — Methane is a highly potent greenhouse gas, and since it is also highly flammable, methane leaks can pose a security threat in addition to representing an environmental issue.

Passive infrared hyperspectral imaging can be used to detect methane leaks from a safe location. Continue reading
