    I bought a couple of these to make IR markers, and they work perfectly for that, spreads IR pretty much equally all over the ENTIRE "positive" hemisphere of it, no datasheet :( even though they are pricey, they are just so great at IR illumination (including backlighting purposes) that you should consider buying a bunch... I wish there was ... Read more
