Paper Abstract

Thermoelectrically cooled detector packages offer rugged, lightweight, relatively inex-pensive devices to the designer and user of infrared systems operating at intermediate (150°K - 250°K) temperatures. This paper explores some of the more important features of thermoelectrically cooled detector packages, their strengths and limitations in comparison to other cooling modes, and their reliability. A brief survey of some of the many applications of these devices is included. Additionally discussed are some of the factors which the designer must consider when choosing a cooling technique for an IR system.
