Abstract:

The report summarizes the results obtained during a sixteen month parametric upconversion program. The goal of the program was the visualization of a thermal image via parametric upconversion. Toward that end a theoretical and experimental effort was undertaken. The theory of parametric upconversion was extended to describe the detection of a thermal image by frequency conversion. The theory developed describes the power output, resolution, contrast and spectral bandwidth to be expected from a thermal upconverter.
