Products and Capabilities

Customised Infrared Solutions:

Amethyst offers custom tailored III-V infrared detectors in SWIR, MWIR and LWIR regions of spectrum. Our technical team of infrared technology experts can design infrared detectors specific to your needs.

Amethyst Barrier Diode Technology:

Following are specification sheets of some of our infrared detectors which operate within the SWIR and MWIR bands, these use our patented Amethyst Barrier Diode Technology (ABaT), which uses specialised noise reduction techniques to optimise optical performance:

eSWIR ABaTTM Detector (Cut-off: ~2.8μm)
MWIR ABaTTM Detector (Cut-off: ~3.5μm)
MWIR ABaTTM Detector (Cut-off: ~4.7μm)



Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photodiode detectors:

Our Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photodiode (RCE-PD) detectors can be designed to operate over the SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands of the infrared spectrum. With their unique narrowband qualities (spectral linewidths of 50 nm) these detectors have very high detectivity over a narrow range of wavelengths and eliminate the need for bandpass filters. RCE-PDs have laser-line detection qualities and are ideally suited to the sensing and identification of particular chemicals by focusing in on their spectral fingerprints.
