Rather than using a CMOS or CCD detector which records different levels of a range of visible light colours, a thermal imaging camera uses a microbolometer array to accurately measure levels of infrared radiation across a scene. This temperature data is then processed to produce a thermal image (known as “thermogram”), which can then be very precisely quantified or measured.
How does a thermal imaging camera work?
