Abstract
Methods for focusing thermal imaging systems are discussed including visual inspection of resolution targets and edges, maximizing the system response to slits or periodic targets, maximizing the response at a particular spatial frequency, and maximizing the output of an edge detection algorithm. Visual inspection of a sweep frequency is found to be the most efficient method for determining focus in raster scanned systems.
