17 October 1994 Characteristics of dc restoration for thermal imagers
Author Affiliations +
The problems of dc restoration have bothered the designers of the thermal imager for many years. The distortion phenomena appear differently in different systems. The shape of distortion is dependent on the scan rate, the RC time constant or the width of the target. From the results of analysis, it shows that the MRT curve is quantitatively related to the time constant and scan rate; it also shows that dc drops are serious for low time constant or slow scan rate, and the 1/f noise is apparent in this case. From this analysis, the best conditions can be evaluated for different systems, and this method is helpful in designing a good system.
