Learn more about the numerous applications of infrared emitters

The outstanding properties of Infrasolid’s infrared emitters and the high miniaturization potential enable smaller, more powerful, and more efficient material analysis and gas measurement devices for a wide variety of applications. The low energy consumption, the high efficiency and the small size allow its use in portable, battery-powered, and mobile applications. Especially growing environmental, safety, and health awareness as well as increasing automation are creating a growing demand for reliable gas sensors, gas monitors and material analysis devices in industrial and consumer applications.

Gas Analytic

The powerful infrared radiators from INFRASOLID are mainly used in NDIR infrared measuring instruments for measuring gas concentrations. This method uses an infrared light source to irradiate the gas to be measured in a closed room. As a result of the absorption of the infrared radiation by the corresponding gas, the reduction of the infrared radiation can be measured with the use of a detector, from which the gas concentration can then be calculated. In this way, a large number of gases can be detected and the method is used in almost all industries where gases have to be monitored, analyzed and controlled.


Infrared spectroscopy is a typical field of application for our emitters. It is a physical method for the non-destructive determination of mostly organic molecular compounds. NIR spectroscopy, which works in a wavelength range of approx. 800 to 2500 nanometres, is of importance. A suitable sample of a substance is exposed to IR radiation and their absorption behaviour allows conclusions to be drawn about the structure of molecules and allows their qualitative and quantitative determination.

Smart Applications

The technology of INFRASOLID cannot only be used for industrial markets. The enormous miniaturization potential and the possibility of low-cost mass production allow it to be used in completely new applications. The focus here is particularly on the consumer sector. Smartphones-, smarthome- and automotive applications harbor huge untapped potential in the coming years. Whether the analysis of food in the supermarket using a smartphone or the smart monitoring of indoor air in your own home. Due to our miniaturized SMD series emitters, various portable and wireless applications are conceivable in the field of NDIR gas analysis and NIR spectroscopy.
