Dexter Research Center, Inc. was founded by Robert Toth, Ph.D in 1977. A leading thin film and materials expert, Bob believed then and now that:
No other infrared device outperforms a thermopile as an affordable detector, and
There is no substitute for collaboration as a means to optimize infrared detector performance, packaging, reliability and durability to surpass the current benchmarks and beyond our customer expectations.
From either the perspective of systems performance or systems cost, customized applications of Dexter Research’s thermopile technology continue to be the preferred solutions to today’s burgeoning infrared detector market.
Dexter Research offers 31 core thermopile products, more than all global competitors combined, each 100% tested for industry-leading quality. We now provide our customers with a choice from over 500 thermopile configurations, and we have new thermopile detectors coming on-line and new customers using our products around the world.
Strategically and tactically, we’re in a great business position, and we’re not done improving our products and performance. In particular, Dexter Research has responded to our competitors with new aggressive marketing and pricing strategies.
