Paper Abstract

The applications of uncooled micro-bolometer VOx FPA to the micro-scale thermal analysis of polymeric & organic materials are presented. The latent heat during phase transition is analyzed with the emissivity correction calculation for all pixels that include the calibration algorithm using a real time direct impose signal system. It enables to visualize the exothermic latent heat of freezing biological cells at minus temperature. In comparison with the previously obtained data by using the InSb FPA sensor, the limitation and the possibility of the un-cooled micro-bolometer in view of application in thermal analysis of materials characterization are discussed.
