16 May 2017 My life in IRFPA Research and Development
Author Affiliations +
My work in infrared technology dates back to 1980, and so almost 40 years have passed since I started in infrared focal plane array (IRFPA) R and D. Although our path was not in the mainstream, I have always enjoyed my research. In this paper, I introduce our accomplishments, including both PtSi Schottky-barrier (SB) and SOI diode uncooled IRFPAs, which were developed at Mitsubishi Electric. I have also been organizing the Infrared Array Sensor Forum (IRASF) at Ritsumeikan University since 2009. I also describe and explain the forum’s growth.
