Paper Abstract

This paper will discuss the pixel by pixel formation of IR scenes using thermoelectric elements. Both 2-5μm and 8-14μm regions are covered. The approach promises flickerless, closed loop, wide dynamic range images which are produced by high emissivity sources. Test results on individual elements in both regimes are presented and two different approaches to implementing the technology will be described. Special test equipment and techniques needed to properly evaluate the target plane will be outlined.
