Industry leading broadband IR solution for spectroscopy and hyperspectral applications


The LUXEON IR ONYX LED features a continuous broadband infrared (IR) emission from 650 to 1100 nm with superior light output characteristics. The LED comes in an industry standard 2720 package and footprint for easy integration in existing designs.

The broadband infrared emission is enabled by new proprietary phosphor materials developed and manufactured at the  Lumileds Phosphor development center to achieve unprecedented performance of up to two times currently available in the market. The new LUXEON IR ONYX LED opens up new possibilities for miniaturization of spectroscopy and hyper-spectral imaging applications in for example hand-held devices for mobile, industrial and medical applications.
