Thermal imaging in the 3-5 micrometer spectral band using Pt-Si Schottky barrier mosaic focal planes has been reported extensively. The content of these papers leaned heavily toward military applications of cameras developed using these devices. The thermal imaging cameras based on the use of these arrays are simple to operate and provide excellent imagery without the need for complex and expensive image correcting or processing. Thus, staring cameras utilizing Schottky photodiodes are low cost. The state-of-the-art in silicon technology provides ruggedness and reliability in these devices making them readily affordable for a variety of non-military applications. We will touch on some of the potential uses for this type of camera and show photographs of typical imagery obtained both day and night, indoor and outdoor.
