6. Development of foil detector for infrared imaging video bolometer using vacuum evaporation technique
Infrared imaging video bolometer measures plasma radiation as an image using pinhole camera technique. To detect plasma radiation with various wavelength, a multi-layer foil consisted of metals and carbon is used.
In this topic, you will deposit gold and carbon on kapton film using vacuum evaporation technique, and then you will evaluate the thermal characteristics of the small detector sample using an infrared camera and a He-Ne laser.
