The Next Generation of Infrared Detectors by ULIS: The High-Resolution UL 04 17 1

Chicago, December 13, 2005

ULIS, a European leader in low-cost infrared detectors for thermal imagery, presents UL 04 17 1, its new uncooled microbolometer detector. This device, in its third generation, is adapted for low-cost thermal imagery with a high spatial resolution and is designed for civil use with thermography, FLIRs, and microscopes, particularly for medical and military applications.

This high-definition array benefits from a NTSC television-type format for comfort during operations that require the best precision. Its technology is based on a resistive amorphous silicon bolometer. As it requires no cryogenic cooling system, optical modulator, or mechanical sweep mechanism, this compact device, with its small detector chip and package, ensures optimal performance for portable thermal cameras. The new 640 x 480 pixel focal plane array with a pitch of 25 microns has a spectral response in bandwidths ranging from 8 to 14 microns.

About ULIS

Founded in June 2002, ULIS is a European leader in the field of uncooled infrared detectors. The company uses a specific microbolometer technology developed by CEA/LETI (Centre d'Energie Atomique / Laboratoire d'Electronique de Technologie de l'Information). To bring its new technologies to market its detectors, ULIS has invested more than $23 million in a new 16,000 sq. ft. production facility including 5,000 sq. ft. dedicated to high-class cleanrooms. The facility produces 50,000 detectors per year.
