Paper Abstract

This paper reports the infrared spectral responses of 17 and 35 μm uncooled bolometers fabricated at INO. They are measured by making use of an external readout circuit along with a monochromator. As expected, the spectral absorption strongly depends on the bolometer stack as well as the pixel layout. By proper selection of design parameters, the spectral response can be made flat from 3 to 14 μm without significant deterioration of the detector figure of merit.
