Lytid, NIT and the National French Research Agency have partnered to develop SIRIS the ultimate cooled SWIR camera

Lytid has released the SIRIS SWIR camera – a deep cooled SWIR camera based upon a Lin/Log InGaAs sensor from NIT and image processing algorithms from the French Research Agency (CNRS).

SIRIS exhibits the best performance on the market for read-out noise (<10e-) and dynamic range (>120dB) simultaneously, thanks to NIT Lin/Log 1601 SWIR sensor. SIRIS is deep cooled down to 50K with a long-life cryocooler allowing a drastic reduction of dark current. Exposure time over one hour can be easily obtained. Everything is fully integrated into a compact and plug-and-play casing based on Lytid’s advanced photonic system integration.

Moreover, SIRIS incorporates advanced noise reduction algorithms developed by ENS-CNRS, among which non-destructive read-out noise reduction is embedded. The resulting noise performance is drastically reduced and the final readout noise is less than 10e-.

Applications for SIRIS cover high-end imaging such as astronomical research, bio-medical imaging, bioluminescence…

We are proud to announe that Lytid and 6 renowned laboratories have been selected with the THOR project (TeraHertz detection enabled by mOleculaR optomechanics).

In this project, we will demonstrate the first nano-scale, cost-effective, fast and low-noise detector working at room temperature in the 1 – 30 THz range by developing a radically new concept of signal up-conversion to VIS/NIR radiation!
This bold vision, which builds on the fundamentals of light-matter interaction (science) and converges toward the on-chip integration in a silicon-compatible chip (technology), completely surpasses any previous technological paradigms related to the measurement of THz molecular vibration.

« … Lytid has sufficient skills and equipment in THz … [and] … represent a credible partner to lead the industrial and commercial operation
of project results.  »
