Paper Abstract

A pyroelectric/CCD hybrid array has been designed and fabricated The array has 16 x 16 elements at 256 micrometers pitch. The hybrid uses a Pb/Sn solder bump technique. The custom CCD includes a high injection efficiency and Image Difference Processing to remove fixed pattern noise. An NETD of 0.4°C at 25 Hz frame rate has been measured.
