Paper Abstract

The full characterization of a detector requires the calculation of the detectivity (D*), based on responsivity and noise equivalent power measurement. In this paper we present a system, developed for noise measurements of micromachined bolometers designed and produced at the VTT Electronics. Measurement results are presented and some ideas for improvement of the developed measuring system, are discussed.
