Custom Coating

Converting sensors to detect UV and IR radiation as a low cost alternative to InGaAs cameras

Many of our customers require phosphor coatings on their own sensors to extend the device’s sensitivity further into the UV or IR parts of the spectrum.

By careful selection of phosphor material and grain size, we can work with you to select the most appropriate solution.

Our state of the art facility allows us to rapidly and effectively coat sensors that are supplied by customers in several formats – typically as naked die or mounted onto PCBs – with consistent quality for both small and large production volumes.

We utilise a selection of different coating methods to suit the specific device and application of the customer’s system.

Typical Phosphors

Typical applications

  • Extending spectral range of low-cost devices
  • Adding functionality to passive components

Why Scintacor?

Scintacor’s expertise in phosphor selection enables us to advise on the best material  for your application. In addition, our experience with coating many different sensors means that we are well placed to coat your devices quickly and reliably.
