Infrared lighting

The TRUMPF VCSEL components for infrared lighting enable homogenous illumination of a defined space, optionally with an emission wavelength of 850 or 940 nm.

Infrared illumination modules

The development and manufacture of efficient infrared light sources enables new areas of application with versatile and demanding requirements when it comes to the lighting unit. The TRUMPF VCSEL components for infrared lighting enable fast image recording due to their very fast pulsing mode, the spectral emission with narrow band helps to suppress noise through ambient light, the components are very reliable in extremely various operating conditions and the production of large quantities enables low manufacturing costs.

The main areas of application include camera systems for the identification of people or objects, such as the recognition of vehicle number plates in road traffic, entrance monitoring, biometric identification during mobile payment, autonomous driving, driver monitoring systems, gesture control and machine vision.


850-nm and 940-nm emission wavelength; suitable for high frequencies and short pulses.


Excellent and reliable performance across a large operating range.


Through integrated optics, the radiation characteristics can be adapted to the customer-specific demand.

Robust and compact

Components in a compact and robust SMD package with a small structural design.


Integrated monitor diode for continuous monitoring of the laser power (optional).

3D camera systems

The main areas of application for active infrared lighting include camera systems for the identification of signs, objects or people, autonomous driving, recognition of faces, gestures and number plates, as well as machine vision.
