Paper Abstract

A new thermal infrared detector fabricated using standard silicon IC technology and silicon micromachining is presented. The device consists of a 10-micron thick cantilever beam with one half covered by an absorbing layer and the other half containing a 44-strip p-Si/Al thermopile. The detectors have a responsivity (in vacuum) of 10 V/W and a relative detectivity D*, measured in air and for a 500 K blackbody source, of approximately 5 x 107 cmHzi/W.
