Abstract

An ordered, mesoporous TiO2 thin film could possibly enhance the efficiency of a microbolometer when used as a thermal isolation layer. The infrared transmission characteristics of a 150 nm thick mesoporous TiO2 film were measured by FT-IR. The calculated infrared absorption rate was higher than 85% in the 8-12 μm wavelength region. The thermal conductivity of a mesoporous TiO2 film was measured by the 3ω method. The CFD-ACE program was used to simulate the thermal isolation effect of a mesoporous TiO2 film inserted in a microbolometer structure. The simulation shows that a great enhancement in the thermal insulation was obtained by using a mesoporous TiO2 layer. The mesoporous TiO2 thin film effectively blocks heat flow from TiN absorber to the bottom layer and returns the downstream heat to the upper resistor layer.
