Ensure that the blackbody source and vacuum chamber are properly aligned
Place the part into the vacuum chamber
Manually set the pressure using the vacuum controllerPressure Experiment: Methodology
Take the step response at different pressures
Manually reduce or increase the pressure using the valve on the vacuum chamber
Plot the sensor’s response against pressure
Rotates the part 180o in front of the black body source
Collects readings from all pixels at each degree interval
Output the raw data
Import the data into Excel and produces graphs
Positioning the sensor prior to testing
Testing of 3x3 or 11x11 arrays
Testing of bolometers and thermopiles
Adjustment to the amount of rotation
Saving collected data to a file
Angular Response can be measured with 1o accuracy
Results in ~5 minutes
Polishing the lens removed the sensor’s angular response
Since the data is 3D, it is easiest to display it in 2D slices
