In this paper, we developed 'Optically Readable BM Infrared Detector' of 55μm x 55μm pixel pitch and 266 X 194 array and evaluated the characteristics of this detector. In the infrared imaging test, we succeeded in obtaining infrared image of a person by adding an offset correction to the raw image taken through CCD camera, whereby we made a great progress to embody an infrared camera with this method. In the infrared imaging testing without correction, we succeeded in obtaining an infrared image of an electric heater and we confirmed the feasibility of the direct viewing in this method. This result offers us a hope to explore new application fields as an infrared camera of low power consumption under this method.
