The Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) part of the infrared spectrum covers roughly the 3 to 5 µm wavelength band. MWIR cameras are typically used for thermal imaging and thermography applications in security and R&D.
Xenics offers a variety of cooled MWIR area cameras and camera cores with integrated Stirling cooler systems for optimal performance.
The Tigris family has one set of cameras based on the InSb type sensor and another based on a HgCdTe type sensor with the standard MWIR response (3-5 microns). However, both sensor types also have the option for Broadband response (1-5 microns).
