Abstract
High-performance thermal imaging cameras based on indium antimonide (InSb) focal plane arrays (FPAs) offer excellent sensitivity in the midwave infrared band, notably in the 3-5 micron waveband. Noise levels below 20 mK enable detection of surface temperature differences of 0.1 C, and the high-speed response of the InSb photodetectors enablesv the capture of events on time scale as short as 5 microseconds.
