About the book :

This monograph on 'Infrared Signatures, Sensors, and Technologies', a topic, on which the availability of literature, especially at one place, is the need of the hour for the scientists engaged in Infrared Signatures, Sensors and Technologies in particular, and the researchers and academicians in general. Practically, all types of the IR Signatures, Sensors, and Technologies including Infrared Spectrum and Sensors, Infrared (IR) Signatures, Deceiving Technologies - Types, Analysis and Modeling of IR Signatures and Countermeasures, Thermal and Radar Signature Management, Fabrication of IR Sensors, Detector Technology and Discussion on QWIPs and QDIPs IR Detectors, IR Threats - RADAR Technology, and IR Seekers, have been discussed in reasonable detail in this monograph, thereby making it very useful indeed for the scientific community in the world. This monograph presents the different aspects of the subject at one place, and therefore, this effort will certainly bridge the gaps between the various types of research papers and technical reports at different places. This monograph should especially be useful for the designers and engineers of the IR devices and sensors, as the topic has been presented and discussed at length. In addition, the monograph is expected to be of immense utility for the budding researchers and scientists in the field, since it provides a large number of recent theoretical and experimental results available in the literature for them to have a clear understanding of the subject.
