Abstract

This project investigated 3x3 and 11x11 pixel array infrared detectors prototyped by Analog Devices, Inc., Limerick for their new ADiR product line. This project verified the potential of the integrated detectors for use in non-contact thermometry applications. The main outcomes included the discovery of device and testing constraints, general detector characterisation and calibration, and the development of software capable of obtaining an absolute temperature measurement from the 3x3 array and a thermal image from the 11x11 array.
