In this paper, we propose a method of constructing a multi- wavelength IR imager and investigate some of its applications. The optical cavity structure has been used to improve the sensitivity of the IR imager for a long time. However, it can also be used as an on-chip interference filter. We developed two kinds of multi-wavelength IR imagers based...

In this work the design and performance of a 537 (H) by 505 (V) -element PtSi Schottky-barrier diode (SBD) IRCCD are described. To downsize the IR camera, the pixel size of the IRCCD has been reduced to 15.2 micrometer by 11.8 micrometer. The package size of the IRCCD is 14 mm by 14 mm. The reduction of the pixel size causes a decrease in thermal s...

We developed an 811 by 508-element monolithic focal plane array detector using a PtSi Schottky-barrier photodiode, which has the greatest number of pixels for the Standard TV format. This detector array uses an interlined CCD configuration and 1.0-micron design rules. The pixel size of this detector was 18 by 21 microns square. From many experiment...

A 811 × 508 pixel PtSi Schottky-barrier infrared CCD image sensor which has the greatest number of pixels for a Standard TV format was developed. We achieved a 38% fill-factor of 18 × 21μm size pixel for this image sensor by using 1.0μm design rules. The noise equivalent temperature difference with f/1.2 was 0.06 K at 300 K. The responsivity nonuni...
