Paper Abstract

I have come here today to describe as best I can, the emergence of consumer-oriented IR imaging devices. The infrared instrumentation base of today's industry is rapidly dwindling because it does not fulfill expanding consumer needs. This new growth area is largely com-posed of non-technical people (not research scientists and engineers). They are looking for simpler, easier-to-use consumer devices that will fulfill specific applications and will not require more complex measurement techniques, more infrared educational training, and of course, not more expensive equipment and accessories.
