Linear InGaAs Array Detectors


The HORIBA Jobin Yvon family of NIR array detectors, the Symphony Series, feature spectroscopic grade InGaAs detectors in a linear array of 512 or 1024 pixels. Spectral coverage from 0.8 to 1.7 microns is standard. With high quantum efficiencies up to 85%, and low dark noise, these detectors are ideal for demanding applications in the NIR including photoluminescence measurements, laser diode characterization, telecoms, Raman spectroscopy, singlet oxygen sensing and environmental monitoring.


  • Choice of 512 or 1024 pixels in thermoelectric or liquid nitrogen cooling.
  • High sensitivity in the near infrared (NIR).
  • Extremely low noise.
  • Ideally suited for low light level detection in near Infrared (NIR) spectroscopic applications.
