Paper Abstract

The PtSi IR CSD was evaluated for astronomical purposes. The device has enough potential to apply for the astronomical uses. Several collaborations are being promoted with the camera. The infrared cameras are reopening infrared windows to the universe since they realize very efficient observations. The appearance of the infrared camera is one of the biggest breakthroughs in the astronomical instrument like that of the photographic plate. The collaboration of the infrared camera is very important both in science and scientific activity of the countries where the camera is not available because of less efficiency of the conventional infrared instrument. The PtSi camera projects under collaboration with Mitsubishi Electric Co. are summarized in this paper.
