That is not a proximity detector.  That is the transmitter and receiver for IRDA... basically for serial communication over infrared.  The receiver will detect the presence of an incoming pulse of IR but will not give an analog signal that will indicate the strength of the pulse.

For accurate distance measurement you probably want a distance measuring device like the Sharp GP2Y0A21YK0F.

For rough proximity detection you can use an IR LED and IR photodiode to measure the amount of IR bouncing off nearby objects.
