Paper Abstract

Three types of uncooled IR bolometric detector arrays equipped with 256 X 1 and 256 X 40 VO2 thermistor pixels and on-chip readout electronics are presented. These reconfigurable arrays consist of 50 micrometer X 50 micrometer pixels and CMOS readout electronics that can be operated either in random access mode or in self-scanning mode. Depending on the operational conditions, the NETD of the arrays can be as low as 20 mK.
