Paper Abstract

Recent changes in the infrared industry, specifically, the switch to next generation focal plane array infrared detectors, has increased the number and type of Thermoelectric Thermal Reference Sources (TTRS) in the market place. Until now little has been published to aid design engineers incorporating TTRSs into infrared systems. This paper will describe the optical, system, electrical, and mechanical parameters of TTRSs. It will provide infrared system design engineers with an overview of critical TTRS parameters as an aid during their design process.
