Theoretical analysis of planar bolometric arrays for THz imaging systems

Abstract:

We describe a procedure for modelling the optical behaviour of planar, bolometric imaging arrays. Arrays of this kind axe being developed for the next generation of ground-based and space-borne, submillimetre-wave and far-infrared, astronomical telescopes. A unique feature of the scheme is that the partially coherent vector fields associated with the individual pixels are traced through the optical system simultaneously. Simultaneous tracing is achieved by propagating the second-order statist...
