Paper Abstract

In order to examine the performance of high Tc superconducting microbolometer operating as infrared detector, a preliminary thermal imager with linear array infrared detector consisting of 8-element high Tc superconducting microbolometers has been established. The experimental thermal imager consists of the linear array infrared detector, optical system, optic-mechanic scanning system, electronic circuits, and microcomputer. In this paper, the constructures and the operation principles of each parts for this experimental thermal imager are described. The noise mechanism of the imager is also discussed.
