InfraTec's Fabry-Perot Detector wins SENSORS EXPO “Best of Show” Gold Award

Judges from SENSOR e-Magazine and the SENSORS EXPO staff awarded InfraTec GmbH the Gold Award for excellence in design innovation and ease of use in the Sensor Component category.

Held every year in June at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center near Chicago’s O’Hare airport, SENSORS EXPO brings together a wide selection of exhibitors representing manufacturers of wireless, pressure, gas, flow meters and other related technologies. This year’s awards went to Gold, Silver, Bronze and Honorable Mentioned awards in the areas of Sensor, Sensor Components, Technologies and Data Acquisition.

InfraTec had submitted, via its North American subsidiary InfraTec Infrared LLC, the product ”Tunable Microspectrometer Detector” for consideration. In the highly competitive category of Sensor Components InfraTec stood up against well-known competition. Having already received awards from the German ”AMA-Sensorinnovationspreis“ in 2008 and the SPIE Prism Award 2009 we have maintained our position as an industry leader in design and innovation with this Fabry-Perot Microspectrometer.

This result could only be achieved by excellent collaboration with our colleagues from both the Center for Microtechnologies at the Chemnitz University of Technology and the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS. It emphasizes the innovation potential of our region in the field of unique technologies and products.

The microspectrometer product family has already been brought to market for the wavelength region between (3.0 ... 4.1) µm and (3.9 ... 4.8) µm. The development in 2010 of this new long wavelength version LFP-80105-337 operating in the (8.0 ... 10.5) µm is a further confirmation of the design potential for FPI technology at InfraTec and its development partners.
