HISbasic series

Black-body infrared sources in TO-39/TO-5 package

HISbasic series emitters have an integrated reflector that directs the radiation emitted from the rear to the front in order to achieve maximum efficiency. Our open emitters offer high performance for a wide spectral measuring range

Infrasolid’s infrared radiation sources are pulsable thermal emitters with a near black-body emittance. Based on a patented nanotechnology and a patented emitter set-up made of a high-melting metal, the free-standing monolithic radiating element and the nanostructured emitter surface offer numerous advantages in many applications.

Key features

Pulsable thermal black-body infrared source mounted in an industry standard TO-39/TO-5 package.

Patented nanostructured radiating element achieves up to 500% more detection signal!

Lower radiating element temperature of 600 °C increases lifetime!

Wide wavelength range enables a broad range of applications.
