|LETTER FROM THE EDITOR|
On Thursday, March 2, 2023 at 9 am PT, the Yole Group will deliver the free webinar “Short-wave Infrared: The Dawn of a New Imaging Age?” in partnership with the Edge AI and Vision Alliance. The term short wave refers to a portion of the infrared spectrum between 1 µm and 3 µm in wavelength. Short-wave infrared (SWIR) imagers based on InGaAs technology have found use in defense markets, for example, where they implement laser target designation and enhanced vision in harsh conditions, as well as in industrial applications such as semiconductor defect detection, package content inspection and inventory sorting.
Historically, SWIR imaging has been a niche market, with cost a key factor limiting broader adoption. InGaAs image sensors typically range in cost from a few thousand to more than ten thousand dollars. However, SWIR is now at a turning point, driven by the emergence of more cost-effective implementations based on quantum dots, germanium and various organic and other materials. The promise of lower-price image sensors has attracted interest in SWIR from consumer electronics and other high-volume applications. For this market growth potential to become a reality, however, the technology will also require further refinement in sensitivity, dark current, response time and other metrics.
In this webinar, Axel Clouet, Ph.D., technology and market analyst at the Yole Group, will discuss the history, current status and future technology and market trends for SWIR imaging, including comparisons with alternative imaging approaches, as well as the evolving and maturing ecosystem that supports SWIR imaging. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation. For more information and to register, please see the event page.
