Paper Abstract

Recent technological advances have made it possible to form arrays of small thin-film-based bolometric pixels integrated onto Si substrates containing both array addressing and readout electronics. These advances have made bolometer technology a potentially low-cost, high-sensitivity, high-yield staring detector technology for the near future. In this paper, the basic performance aspects of an IR microbolometer are described. The design of a high-performance pixel and the performance measurements on some initial devices are presented. The potential performance of two-dimensional arrays is discussed.
