The future

Evolution of detection

IRnova strives for progress every day and in every aspect of our business. We deliver that evolution to our clients through better service and better detector performance. It’s that simple.

Together with customers, our scientists spearhead the technological advances we need to create and operate detectors that can run hotter. That means less cooling is needed and power consumption is reduced. Over the next few years, we will introduce several groundbreaking detectors, based on our key T2SL (Type–2 Superlattice) technology.

No boundaries to detection

T2SL allows us to push the boundaries of detection in almost every field. IRnova plans to introduce high definition (full HD and beyond) infrared detectors serving the midwave infrared spectrum of 3–5 µm, as well as the 8–12 µm longwave infrared (LWIR) and very longwave (VLWIR) spectrum.

Over the coming decades IRnova’s detectors will let our customers see further and clearer than ever before. Meanwhile we’ll keep doing what we do best—innovating and moving forward.

HD T2SL conquering space

IRnova advancement in T2SL received several contract awards from European Space Agency (ESA) paving the future for European space footprint for earth observation.

These contracts affirms ESA's commitment to maintaining European ascendancy in the supply chain for cutting-edge infrared detectors and sets T2SL as the most desirable technology for ultra-large format detectors for space and earth observation satellites. These contracts have set IRnova as the leading European expert in T2SL material for space applications.
