Paper Abstract

Imaging sensors employing linear arrays of pyroelectric detectors have been built and demonstrated. Such sensors are suitable for "slow scan" applications in framing imagers. The impact of recent developments in detector technology are reviewed. Full T.V. rate solid state pyroelectric imaging sensors require the use of two dimensional arrays of detectors. A prototype sensor employing such a detector has been built and the performance achieved to date is described.
