Positive and Negative Luminescent Infrared Sources and Their Applications

  • T. Ashley (a1)


We describe uncooled mid-infrared light emitting and negative luminescent diodes made from indium antimonide based IlI-V compounds, and long wavelength devices made from mercury cadmium telluride. The techniques to produce large area positive and negative luminescent sources, and the application of these devices to gas sensing, improved thermal imagers and imager testing is discussed.
