P4 - Development of an IR Microbolometer Camera for Operation in a Strong Magnetic Field

D. Wassilew, U. Hoffmann & D. Hildebrandt
In the present paper an uncooled microbolometercamera with 640x480 pixel is described developed for operation in strong stationary magnetic fields with a magnetic flux density of 3T as occurred in the experimental fusion stellarator Wendelstein7-X currently being constructed at the Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik in Greifswald. The infrared viewing systems in Wendelstein 7-X are required for monitoring critical components of the device as the divertor target plates with a spatial and temporal resolution of 10 mm...
