MCT IR Detector Module

The MCT (Mercury-Cadmium-Telluride) IR (infrared) Detector Module is a thermoelectrically cooled detector element and preamplifier package optimized for acquiring spectral data with the LaserTune Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) source.

Please note: Block's MCT Detector Module is not sold as a standalone product, but can only operate in conjunction with Block’s LaserTune product.

With the module, users can configure a spectrometer in a variety of ways for applications such as IR microscopy. Spectral data is acquired and viewed in the LaserTune application software without the need for additional data collection or processing electronics.

The module is optimized for the emission profile and fast scan rate of the LaserTune QCL. Unlike other commercial MCT detectors, the MCT IR Detector module requires no liquid nitrogen to operate.

LaserTune's wide tuning range, flexible tuning, and superb beam quality make it ideal for high performance laboratory applications, and its compact size allows for easy integration into any system or instrument.
