New optoelectronic devices for the Mid-Infrared spectral range open completely new possibilities for portable sensors creation. Using Mid-infrared LED-PD optopairs allows developing an instrument that is smaller, less expensive and versatile.
LED Chip Design
Standard Mid Infrared LED chip
This shape of the LED chip is typical for most of LED Microsensor NT standard LED models (Lms XX LED series).Main features of standard packaging are:
- Small size of the LED chip (close to point source);
- Effective heat dissipation from the active layer;
- Uniform current distribution in the active region;
- Cost effective (due to small size).
