IR optical systems: managing unique design challenges

05/28/2014

In addition to the typical problems faced by optical designers working in the visible spectral region, designers of optics for IR thermal-imaging systems must contend with the fact that, in the thermal-IR range, housings, baffles, stops, and even the optics themselves emit radiation. This self-emission creates stray-light and vignetting problems that require special design measures and practices. Moreover, the selection of optical materials is somewhat limited. In this webcast, sponsored by Sensors Unlimited - UTC Aerospace Systems, Gary Wiese, a retired Lockheed Martin Fellow, presents an overview of these issues along with a few design examples.
