Abstract

Linear arrays of thin membrane (0.5-0.8-μm) pyroelectric PVF2 detectors have been constructed. The size of each element was 0.1 × 3 mm. The arrays were built with twenty-four channels of hybrid self-scanning electronics and packaged in vacuum containers, D* of 1.5 × 109 cm/Hz/W at 10 Hz and thermal cross talk of <15% at 50 Hz were obtained.
