Paper Abstract

The electrically heated thin film resistor array presents promising future to provide dynamic IR scenes for hardware- in-the-loop simulation. Its radiant output is principally affected by the time-dependent temperature distribution on the emitting surface. And the performance is limited principally by the thermal constraints. In this paper, the numerical analysis of heat transfer in the thin film resistor array is conducted by the use of finite difference technique. The investigation is concentrated on thermal crosstalk between neighboring elements and relation of temperature distribution with applied power.
