Paper Abstract

To optimize system performance, several factors must be considered in the design of IR window assemblies. These include -- but are not limited to -- transmission shading and bondline effects. If not properly considered, these factors can easily limit the performance of modern thermal imaging systems. This paper discusses the aforementioned factors in detail and illustrates, by way of examples, how they can be minimized.
