Abstract:

This report describes the preparation and performance of metal film bolometer infrared detectors using a versatile fabrication technology for both single-element detectors and focal plane arrays. Detectors are prepared on conventional semiconductor-grade silicon substrates and extensive use is made of state-of-the-art microcircuit manufacture techniques. A detectivity of approx. 2 x 10 to the 8th power cm. sq. root of Hz. per watt and speed of response of or to 1 ms can be achieved, for detector element sizes as small as 50 micron.
