Paper Abstract

Properties of P(VDF-TrFE) copolymer have been studied. A characterization for thermal detection has been done on various copolymer samples with thicknesses ranging from 1 micrometers to 1 mm. a pyroelectric coefficient of 4 nC/cm2 degree(s)C has been measured on samples polarized by the corona discharge method. Optical, dielectric, and thermal properties have also been measured. The possibility of polarizing the copolymer directly on an integrated circuit by corona discharge has been demonstrated and a monolithic detector array of 32 elements has been realized. Fabrication procedure, results of characterization and performance of the detectors are presented.
