Next Gen Thermoelectric Coolers for Optoelectronics

Date: Monday, September 13, 2021

Time: 12:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Duration: 1 hour

Complex manufacturing processes require advanced thermal management solutions to support heat removal and temperature stabilization of optic systems in a wide range of applications. For example, thermoelectric coolers provide superior spot cooling for laser optics and power sources to deliver robust, low-power, and maintenance-free operation. 





Cooling Solutions for Autonomous Systems


Advances in autonomous technologies, such as smart headlights, autonomous systems for collision avoidance, and infotainment systems, require enhanced thermal protection of critical electronics to ensure optimized performance. These emerging intelligent autonomous systems are increasingly complex while decreasing in size and weight. Packing more functionality into smaller footprints has increased the heat flux density and thermal challenges in autonomous systems.

Infrared Range Sensors

Infrared Range (IR) sensors are used in a variety of applications, including temperature sensing, video surveillance and motion detection. The video surveillance market utilizes infrared sensing technology for motion-based detection to improve facility security at night. Thermal cameras utilizing IR technology help airport staff quickly screen passengers to detect fever. Most recently, infrared range sensors are used to detect people’s body temperatures as a security and safety measure in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic. 

Laser Diodes

With the ability to convert electrical current into high-intensity light, laser diodes enable many applications including data transmission at very far distances in modern fiber-optic communication systems. Within industrial processing, laser diodes are bundled together to form a high-power laser that can cut thru materials. Laser diodes are also used in light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technology used, for example, to map the area surrounding an autonomous vehicle.
