Abstract:

Infrared thermal imaging and low light level imaging systems and components were subjects for a conference sponsored by the Institution of Electrical Engineers, and held at that Institution headquarters in London, 3-5 March 1975. The keynote speaker was Prof. R. A. Smith, CBE, who has made significant contributions to the field. This report, in addition to a synopsis of Prof. Smiths talk, contains brief outlines of talks on negative electron affinity p-silicon and gallium arsenide photoemitters, proximity focused diode intensifiers, minority carriers sweepout operation of HgCdTe photodetector, linear arrays of PbSnTe photovoltic elements, a comparison of performance of S-25 channel inverter to a GaAs proximity focused channel tube and medical applications for ir thermography. An appendix contains all titles and authors of papers presented at the Conference.
