Abstract
We report a simulation tool employing the finite element method for thermal-based radiation sensor analysis. Application of the tool to bolometric detectors is described, and simulation examples are given. Excellent agreement is observed between experimental and measured data. In addition, an equivalent circuit model, with pertinent parameters calculated automatically by the simulation tool, is also presented.
