Paper Abstract

The ways of development of high sensitive area IR sensors for medical thermovision, conducted at National Research Institute (NRI) 'Electron' (Russia) are presented. Registration of temperature and spectral variation of IR illumination from small area of human's skin (or other biological objects) in wide spectral range requires use of an area IR sensor of large format, operating in signal accumulation mode. It is shown that IR Schottky Barrier (SB) CCDs comply with majority of requirements and are the most suitable for the purpose from cost/quality point of view. The basic parameters of an area IR SB CCDs and IR cameras for 1,5 - 5,5 μm spectral range, developed at 'Electron' NRI and program of development IR cameras for 1,2 - 12 μm for medical applications are considered.
