Paper Abstract

This paper presents characterization data for a platinum silicide, staring mode, infrared camera. The camera focal plane is an interline transfer CCD with a 244 X 160 array of PtSi photodiodes. We also present samples of the imagery obtained with this IR camera. Our results demonstrate that the performance of silicide based infrared sensors is now superior to industrial thermal imaging systems that are based upon scanning.
