Using The CryoLab, it is possible to measure the performance of an IR sensor from room temperature down to cryogenic temperatures. Cooling it down to cryogenic temperatures highly improves the signal-to-noise ratio of the sensor, increasing its sensitivity. The IR sensor can be connected to a carrier chip to which electronic connections can be made using bond or solder wires. Measurements can be done fast and in a plug-and-play manner. Once a sensor is optimized for cryogenic temperatures, integrated solutions could be considered to develop in field applications.
Kryoz’ microcooling technology matches with important aspects of using cryogenics in combination with IR sensors including:
Very small size cold tip that matches the size of the sensor.
Semi customised solution – IR cryocooling for Space
Kryoz designed and fabricated a cooler design specifically designed for cooling IR sensors in space applications. This was done for the European Space Agency (ESA). The device matches specific space application requirements including:
Cold stage can resist extreme mechanical vibrations (during rocket launch).
Cooling power matches dissipation of IR sensor.
Possibility to combine cryocooler with closed-loop sorption compressor.
