Array Detectors S W McKnight and C A DiMarzio Focal Plane Arrays Imaging Systems H R Runciman, Thermal Imaging, CRC Press Scanning vs. Staring Arrays Scanning Systems

Point detector or linear array with scanning optics Less complicated detector Calibration easier Scanning system expensive, fragile Fast detector

Staring Arrays Multiple detectors elements to capture pixels of image Less complicated optics (lighter, smaller, no moving parts) Longer integration time to increase sensitivity Need multiplexer for signal read-out

Charge-Coupled Devices (CCDs) Charge transfer and collection Easier processing, less interconnects CMOS Individually addressed and processed pixels Less power No loss in tranfer N-Channel FET Structure S, Source
