Paper Abstract

Test data is provided on a solid state infrared source developed by High Technology Sensors.* Modulated infrared output has been obtained by injecting free carriers into a heated semiconductor. The source emits radiation from 3 microns to 12 microns. Modulation to 20kHz has been demonstrated. A qualitative source emittance model is presented and the utility of the source for gas sensing applications is discussed.
