The work of a MEMS-technology compatible thin-film thermoelectric IR radiation sensor with multiple PbTe thermocouples is simulated. The sensitivity up to 350 V/W is predicted. PbTe thin films are grown on the BaF2(111) buffered Si(111) substrates, using the hot-wall-beam epitaxy technique. Indium and zinc ion implantation is applied to transform the as-grown p-PbTe films into the n-type thermocouple counterpart films. With a dose of 10l6 cm-2 and exposition time of 3-4 h, a 4-μm-thick film is homogeneously reversed, retaining the high epitaxial quality.
