Abstract:

The objective of this project is to design, fabricate, and test an infrared radiometer assembly in which the sensitivity is primarily limited by background irradiance. The equipment will use an indium antimonide detector having a state-of-the-art D sensitivity value in the optical band 4.5 to 4.8 microns. The radiometer will be designed to be optimized for use with this specified detector. The project includes a closed-cycle cooler to achieve the required detector cooling.
