Paper Abstract

Infrared imaging devices can be used to view thermal characteristics in real time and to solve a wide variety of problems. An infrared microscanner originally introduced at SPIE in 1972 is shown applied to produce infrared signatures of beam lead devices . A number of other applications using other scanning techniques are also presented, including the examination of heat pipes, coatings, hybrid circuits and coils. Methods of using these thermal images in solving quality control and reliability problems are discussed.
