Founded in 1986, Santa Barbara Infrared, Inc. (SBIR) designs and manufactures the most technologically advanced Electro-Optic Test Equipment available in the world. SBIR is the leading supplier of standard and custom instrumentation for FLIR testing, IR detector testing, IR simulation and testing-sensor boresighting. SBIR¡¦s core business is divided into three segments: Standard products sold off of a published price list, build-to-print and build-to-spec. One of the keys to SBIR¡¦s on-going success and consistent growth has been its ability to leverage the application of its standard product line and core technologies to the build-to-print and build-to-spec business, the two largest core business segments of the company.
The Engineering Department at SBIR is capable of complete design activity to support all aspects of infrared testing including mechanical, electrical, electromechanical, electro-optical and software/firmware design. These design capabilities span the spectrum from wide and narrow band infrared applications to laser and visible systems, often fusing several systems at different wavelengths into a single instrument/system. SBIR¡¦s proven strength in these areas is combined with a practical, design-for-manufacturing approach that results in both standard production and custom systems that are highly reliable and user-friendly.
Standard product items include State-of-the-Art blackbody sources, target wheels, targets, collimators, target projectors, IR scene simulators, detector test benches and FLIR test software. These are available as individual components or integrated into turnkey IR test systems.

Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
R. Bruce Weisman
AZoOptics interviews R. Bruce Weisman from Rice University in Texas, US, who has discovered fluorescence from silicon nanoparticles in cement and how it can be used to reveal early signs of damage in concrete structures.
