The ability to accurately model the performance of un-cooled, long-wave imaging infrared detectors is becoming
increasingly important as they become more viable for a range of applications. Often micro-bolometer based detectors
are employed, which have a different temporal response than traditional CCD devices, affecting motion blurring
characteristics. By locking the detector readout to an optical chopper with variable delay, the temporal response may be
mapped. Experimental results for a commercially available camera are presented in order to fit and validate a parametric
temporal response model.
