Paper Abstract

Uncooled infrared focal plane arrays are being developed for a wide range of thermal imaging applications. Developments are focused on the improvement of their sensitivity, enabling the possibility of reducing the pixel pitch in order to decrease the total system (size and weight) by using smaller optics. The amorphous silicon technology is the latest one developed by CEA/LETI and transferred to ULIS to manufacture uncooled infrared 2D arrays. We developed for this device a low cost package based on existing technologies. This device is well adapted to multipurpose high volume applications where spatial resolution (in term of pixel number) is less important than device costs.
