So today I am going to show a better method to make your own PCB, which is using toner transfer paper. Toner transfer paper can be obtained very cheap from China seller, so I think its quite affordable for hobbyists who wants to make their PCB at home.

Infra-red Sensor (IR)

What is infra-red (IR)? Infra-red is an electromagnetic wave who wavelength is between 0.75 microns to 1000 microns (1 micron = 1µm). Since infra-red is out of visible light range, we can’t really see IR with naked eye. However, there is a method to “see” IR which will be shown later on. Some of the infra-red applications includes night vision, hyperspectral imaging, and communications. We also use IR daily in our TV remote or any device remote.
