Company Description

In 2005, three high-tech entrepreneurs founded DRS Daylight Solutions in San Diego, California, with the goal of developing breakthrough technologies and products around the company’s core technology: mid-IR quantum cascade lasers (QCLs). Our mission is to be the leading provider of best-in-class, mid-infrared sources and systems for defense, commercial, and research markets. Our global leadership position in advanced, mid-IR technology means that DRS Daylight customers benefit from a sustainable, competitive advantage in molecular detection and imaging applications.

ProductEncDescription
infrared detectorsS Einfrared detectors from DRS Daylight Solutions

Our Amplified MCT™ is a natural fit with DRS Daylight’s pulsed mid-IR lasers. It is a fully integrated receiver with embedded IR detector, low-noise amplifier, and temperature controller into one compact package.

Features:

  • room-temperature operation, with a two-stage TEC for cooling to 245 K
  • broad mid-IR spectral response of 4–12 µm
  • high sensitivity, with D* > 2.5 × 109 cm·Hz½/W
  • rise time <3 ns
  • active area of 1 mm × 1 mm
  • wide field of view: 78°
  • AC-coupled photoconductive configuration for pulsed laser detection
laser microscopesS Elaser microscopes from DRS Daylight Solutions

In a class of their own, the family of Spero® microscopes represents the world’s first and highest performing wide-field spectroscopic microscopy platform based on broadly tunable mid-infrared quantum cascade laser (QCL-IR) technology. Get high-quality data at unprecedented speeds.

Utilizing Daylight’s unique, patented QCL-IR light engine, Spero-QT 340 is faster than Raman and photothermal IR microscopes by orders of magnitude while avoiding sample auto-fluorescence and sample degradation by highly focused light sources.
