Abstract : The patent describes a contour plotter for testing the response of an infrared detector comprising a small, cathode-ray tube with a hidden electron gun for generating a flying-hot-spot raster, a refracting, optical lens for focussing a reduced image of this raster on the detector under test, an oscilloscope, a two-dimensional sweep generator for sweeping the oscilloscope and the small, cathode ray tube in synchronism, and an electronic amplifier for applying the output of the detector to the Z-axis of the oscilloscope so that the intensity of the oscilloscope scanning beam is varied in accordance with the detector output response.
