Microbolometers detect thermal energy over the long-wave range (8-14 microns). When this happens, the detector heats up in response to the absorbed energy and changes its electrical resistance. The resistance change is processed to create an image. Unlike other IR detector equipment, microbolometers do not require cooling. This advantage contributes to lowering the cost of infrared cameras. ULIS amorphous silicon technology, a unique and mature semiconductor technology offers cost-effectiveness and producibility that are not accessible to other technologies.

Camera applications for ULIS' IR detectors include industrial maintenance, security and surveillance, building inspection, fire fighting and law enforcement, and night vision enhancements for vehicles. For more information, visit
