Abstract
The infrared spectral region has intrigued scientists for over a hundred years, but until recently it has been impossible to create infrared sensors analogous to the human eye. The recent breakthroughs have come about through the creation of large, two-dimensional solid-state arrays that have thousands of detectors distributed across the focal plane of an optical system. The days of scanning-type optical systems are numbered, as such systems give way to staring-type sensors.
