Paper Abstract

Earth observation from space becomes more important for global monitoring of air-pollution, unusual meteorological circumstances, and disaster preventions of the Earth. In paticular, observations in the infrared region from a geostationary orbit brings great advantage for the above purposes. To improve geometric and radiometric resolutions and also to shorten observing intervals, NASDA now develops a new device "IRCCD" (Infra-Red Charge Coupled Device) for a spaceborne infrared radiometer covering wavelength beyond 10gm . This paper describes detection mechanisms and test results of experimentally fabricated test devices for IRCCD and gives a breaf description of a cryogenic refrigerator maintaining the IRCCD at around 70K.
