- Opportunity and Forecast, 2016-2025
Infrared (IR) LED, also known as infrared transmitter, transmits light at wavelengths longer than that of the visible light. Although infrared light is not visible to the naked eye, digital cameras can detect its presence. Its operating voltage is approximately 1.4 volts, and current usage is less than 20mA. IR LED offers benefits such as low power consumption, meagre cost, and high security. These devices are used to produce infrared sensors using a combination of receivers, owing to its ability to find applications in remote controls wireless mouse, cameras, and telecommunication modules. R&D activities in this sector have focused on increasing the scope of its applications for surveillance and security purposes.
