Paper Abstract

The next generation of resistively heated emitter pixels will be required to attain MWIR apparent temperatures on the order of 2000K, which will require pixel temperatures on the order of 3000K. Numerical simulations have been carried out to determine the material properties required to support the desired performance. Research has been performed to identify a set of potential materials for fabricating these devices based on materials science, existing thermophysical properties, thermodynamic stability and compatibility with thin film processing.
