The tunable infrared detector is based on a bulk micromachined spectrally tunable Fabry-Perot interferometer with an air cavity, which is electrostatically tuned and combined with a pyroelectric infrared detector. This ensures low cost, small size and high optical performance. We demonstrated the flexible use of the tunable detector in gas analyzers and spectroscopic applications. According to the optical setup and the operation mode high signal-to-noise-ratios of up to 8000:1 and spectral resolution lambda/Delta lambda of up to 75 were achieved. Continuously sweeping the Fabry-Perot filter opens up new capabilities of a pyroelectric detector. This particular operation mode has principally the potential to accelerate the recordings of spectra remarkably. New application fields include medical diagnostics and detection of hazardous substances in industrial and security environments.
