An infrared (IR) sensor with the lead-titanate (PbTiO3) thin-film using the technology of micro-electromechanical system to achieve a better thermal isolation structure has been fabricated and developed, The major IR-sensing part on the cantilever beam with dimensions of 200×100×2 μm3 consists of a 500 /spl Aring/ PbTiO3 layer deposited by RF sputtering, and an evaporated bismuth (Bi) layer. This thermal isolation improved structure exhibits a much superior performance to that of a traditional IR-sensing bulk structure on the experimental results, which show a 200% and 300% improvement in current gain under the incident optical power 500 μW and 6 V applied bias at room temperature and 77 K, respectively,.
