Paper Abstract

This paper reviews and updates the progress in pyroelectric vidicon research and development. The principal items are high readout efficiency for low picture lag, high thermal impedance at the picture element for a high spatial resolution, good target uniformity and cosmetics, low readout noise, and camera design and signal processing. To illustrate the camera potential, a portable camera designed as a fire fighting aid is described.
