The worlds highest resolution SWIR cameras

ACUROS® CQD®

SWIR Vision Systems has pioneered the first-ever, 2.1 megapixel, CQD® SWIR camera. The Acuros CQD® is the highest resolution SWIR camera commercially available.

DESIGNED TO HELP YOU SEE, WHAT YOU COULDN’T SEE BEFORE

With broad band spectral response from 400 nm to 2000 nm, Acuros delivers high definition imaging across the visible, near infrared, and shortwave infrared spectral region; all from a single camera. The high resolution, full HD, CQD cameras generate wide field of view images and excellent spatial resolution, making the Acuros® invaluable to multiple industries and applications. What once was nearly impossible to see, is now visible in high resolution detail.

HOW IT WORKS

The Acuros® CQD® camera products use our patented CQD sensor technology. CQD sensors are fabricated using low-cost deposition techniques to produce quantum dot photodiodes directly on CMOS readout integrated circuits (ROICs).

  • 1. Encapsulant
  • 2. Transparent Electrode
  • 3. Other Thin Film Layers
  • 4. Quantum Dots
  • 5. Metal Pixel Electrode
  • 6. CMOS-based read-out integrated circuit (ROIC)

The CQD® Process:

The process requires no hybridization, no epitaxial growth or exotic substrate materials, scaling easily to high volume production. The approach employs low-cost, solution-processed, colloidal quantum dots to form small pitch p-n photodiode arrays sensitive in both the SWIR and visible spectral bands.

HOW IT STACKS UP

Today the SWIR imaging market is dominated by InGaAS sensors whose fabrication method imposes limitations on pixel size, pixel spacing and sensor resolution. With the introduction of SWIR’s Acuros CQD Sensor, production is more affordable and easier to scale, without sacrificing performance.

InGaAs SWIR

  • Lower resolution
  • Not volume scalable
  • Not cost scalable
  • Difficult to export
