Abstract : The visible and infrared transmitting properties of a specific epoxy resin are analyzed and shown to be suitable for bonding infrared detectors, operating in the 2-14 micrometers spectral region, to an optically transmitting substrate for immersed applications; additionally, this resin permits preliminary system alignment using visible radiation. The resin also has desirable physical properties for such bonding applications.
