Abstract:

An optimum small size, low frequen y, narrow band-pass filter amplifier is theoretically designed for the purpose of improving the signalto-noise ratio of infrared radiation detectors. Optimum design is based on maximum sharpness for minimum physical size. The filter is designed to be comparable to a miniature correlator, previously developed for the same purpose and described in another report, both in physical size and in noise elimination effectiveness. Optimum design curves of filter component values as a function of a normalized design time constant have been prepared. The theoretical effectiveness of the filter in eliminating noise is presented graphically and compared to similar correlator performance data. Author
