A Novel Method for Estimating the Thermal Conductance of Uncooled Microbolometer Pixels

Abstract

We propose a novel thermal model for uncooled microbolometer pixels. The model simplifies a three-dimensional (3D) microbolometer structure to a slab composed of two regions, and solves the corresponding heat equation by applying an orthogonal-expansion method. The results are compared to finite element simulations and conventional thermal conductance… (More)
