Abstract:

Seeing in the dark or looking through haze is easy if you know how; Spire Corporation has invented infrared "eyes" which peer through two atmospheric windows simultaneously, spotting both hot (vehicles) and warm (people) targets at the same time. It takes two separate detectors to do this now but, using metalorganic chemical vapor deposition, the company will develop single packages to do the job. Because they will be simpler, cheaper, and smaller than conventional focal plane arrays, Spire thinks its dual-band mosaics will make night time snooping practical for everyone!
