A great deal of information about the physical world, from cosmos to DNA, comes to us in the form of infrared radiation (IR). In addition, man-made systems, such as automotive LiDAR, thermal-vision cameras, or communication networks, rely on IR for successful and optimal operation. A common denominator to nearly all uses of IR as a probe or messenger, from spectroscopy to imaging, is its detection. Therefore, IR photodetectors are the main focus of this webinar, in particular, their structure, operation, and optoelectronic characteristics. The webinar also discusses the process of selecting a suitable IR photodetector in the context of a given application.
