Light-Emitting Diodes for 1.9 to 7 mm


NEW!! - You spoke and we listened.

Now available is the Universal Photon Source (UPS) Driver Board that drives infrared sources, LEDs, and lasers in CW or pulsed mode.  Click here for information.



Our IR LEDs are made in St. Petersburg Russia by IoffeLED a spin out of the Ioffe Institute.

Devices are available with center wavelengths of 1.9, 2.1, 3.0, 3.4, 3.6, 3.8, 4.2, 4.7, 5.5 and 7.0 microns.  Typical emission bandwidth is 0.5 mm and power levels at 10's to 1000's of microwatts depending on wavelength, duty cycle etc.

The devices we NOW offer are superior to the prior ones for the follow reasons:

  1. They are packaged in a style that allows easy heat sinking and thus higher drive power and higher optical power output.  This is the "screw package" illustrated below.
  2. The devices that we offer now are lower cost than previously.
  3. The devices we offer now are better documented than the previous devices.
