Paper Abstract

Current infrared imaging systems monitor emission from a given scene over a broad spectral range, which results with "black and white" images. As a result, there is ever increasing emphasis on the development of new, on the pixel level, infrared imaging technology that can provide spectral information. Attempts at creating a robust imaging system with spectral information have been made through a network of external optics, which results with a high cost and large system package. Here, we propose a metamaterial design that resonantly couples to an infrared photodetector for enhanced performance.
