Paper Abstract

We suggest a method for spatially and temporally resolved IR-image detection by using a semiconductor-gas discharge (SGD-) structure. The operation of the device is based on the conversion of IR-radiation into the visible spectral range. Especially, we discuss the influence of the system parameters on the operation of the device and propose a technical realization for a real time IR-image conversion camera based on the converter cell in connection with a standard CCD-camera. In combination with a gateable CCD-camera or an electron-optical recording technique (e.g., streak- or framing camera), the converter structure could be used for high speed IR-imaging in the microsecond range.
