Paper Abstract

The next generating of thermal imaging systems probably will use 2-dimensional FPAs without mechanical scanners. This means to develop starring infrared sensor arrays. The limitations of present systems will be discussed. As a result, the detector array has to be combined with a suited readout multiplexer. Within the infrared transparent wavelength range from (3-5) μm the Si:In-IR detector seems to be one of the favourite candidates, especially for the monolithic integration with read out electronics. As multiplexer, the charge coupled device, CCD, is a very useful tool.
