Paper Abstract

Narcissus, imaging of a cold detector onto itself, is usually disturbing in scanning thermal imaging system. But it can be used as a cheap and effective testing tool for complete thermal imaging systems. A mirror placed in front of the system induces narcissus. This set-up is examined, and three examples are given, one in the 3 - 5 μm range and two in the 9 - 12 μm range.
