Micro-photoelectric IR Camera
Doped Carbon Nanoflakes: A New Concept for Fast, Sensitive, Room Temperature Field Emitter Array Infrared Imager
- Low-cost, uncooled IR detector camera with a detectivity and resolution approaching that of current high-end systems
- Doped carbon nanostructures (flakes or tubes) are low work function field emitters
- Dopant coating provides more electropositive material, and
- Structure reduced surface barrier as a function of electric field.
