Broadband Pulsed Infrared Light Sources

The pulsIR and reflectIR product family features a low thermal-mass filament that has been ion-beam treated for high infrared emissivity. These electrically-pulsed, high intensity infrared radiators provide intense IR output while operating at relatively low temperature. This improves power efficiency, extends lifetime, and reduces the parasitic heating of system optics and detectors. They may be operated constant or pulsed at rates up to 10 Hz enabling the design of smaller and simpler systems that do not require the added complexity of a mechanical chopper.
