Paper Abstract

Uncooled infrared focal plane arrays are being developed for a wide range of thermal imaging applications. Developments are focused on the improvement of their sensitivity enabling the possibility to manufacture high performance radiometric devices with internal temperature stabilized shield to determine precisely the input infrared flux. We present the characterization of a new radiometric device obtained from 320 x 240 uncooled microbolometer array with f/1.4 aperture. This device is well adapted to radiometric or process control applications and moreover shows a high level of stability due to the internal temperature stabilized shield which prevents the detector from camera internal temperature shift artifacts.
