Paper Abstract

Pyroelectric detector arrays have the potential to satisfy a number of infrared sensing and imaging applications because of their attractive features of room temperature operation and low cost. They are most suited to operation at moderate frequencies, in the 10 to 100 Hz region, where they can have an NETD of less than 0.2°C, limited by internal detector noise sources. An experimental imager built to evaluate linear pyroelectric arrays is described, and its performance compared with theoretical predictions.
