Paper Abstract

The ability to accurately model the performance of un-cooled, long-wave imaging infrared detectors is becoming increasingly important as they become more viable for a range of applications. Often micro-bolometer based detectors are employed, which have a different temporal response than traditional CCD devices, affecting motion blurring characteristics. By locking the detector readout to an optical chopper with variable delay, the temporal response may be mapped. Experimental results for a commercially available camera are presented in order to fit and validate a parametric temporal response model.
