Most applications for thermal infrared imaging in non-destructive- testing can be narrowed down to the measurement of the surface temperature or the thermal response of the object under test. Apart from these obvious applications for thermal imaging, the differing optical properties can be utilized for special optical inspection tasks. This technical report will give a brief overview of the differences in technology for capturing and displaying images in the far-infrared spectrum. While the camera technology for this spectrum is well matured, infrared display technology for civil uses is practically non available.
