Paper Abstract

The characteristics of the new 18 mm and standard 25 mm pyroelectric vidicons are comioared. The smaller 12 mm target in the new PEV tube results in lower lag, pedestal current and bandwidth thus allowing a camera system based on the new tube to achieve performance com-parable to the standard tube. The 18 mm PEV shows a sensitivity of 2.5 °C in the pan mode with resulting chopper-mode minimum resolvable temperature (MRT) measured at 0.4°C for 2.5 1p/mm spatial frequency.
