    HgCdTe (MCT) Photoconductive Detectors

    Photoconductive detectors based on the photoconductive effect. Infrared radiation generates charge carriers in the semiconductor active region decreasing its resistance. The resistance change is sensed as a current change by applying a constant voltage bias. The devices are characterized by near linear current-voltage characteristics. The electric field in photoconductors is constant across the device. Learn more.

  • VIGO System Infrared detection modules

    VIGO System Infrared detection modules

    VIGO's modules (infrared detectors integrated with electronics) are characterized by high sensitivity in a wide spectral range from 1 to 16 μm, high speed in frequency bands up to 1 GHz, optimized amplification of the measured signal and operating temperatures in the range from 200 to 300 K. Our offer there are ready-made modules for applications such as gas analysis, temperature control in fast-moving objects, laser spectroscopy.

  • WOP Developed Laser System for Memory of Mankind Project, Delivered to Vienna

    WOP Developed Laser System for Memory of Mankind Project, Delivered to Vienna

    WOP have successfully developed and delivered a laser system for the Memory of Mankind project (MOM), an initiative created to preserve today’s stories to give the future to the past.

    The digital age carries with it the risk that records will either become swiftly illegible or vanish. The system will enable to write the data on ceramic tablets stored for a million years later on.

  • New brand: VIGO Photonics

    New brand: VIGO Photonics

    For almost 35 years, VIGO System specialists and researchers have been developing technology, which made the company become a world leader in manufacturing of uncooled photon infrared detectors. Over the years, from a small company employing a few people, VIGO System has become a firm that hires over 200 qualified specialists. The company delivers its products to the biggest technological businesses and the most renowned research centers worldwide. This highest level of technology was recognized when VIGO System infrared detectors were used by NASA during the Mars Science Laboratory mission.
