Figure 1: Overview of the array and access circuitry, to be fabricated using the BiCMOS process at the Stanford Nanofabrication Facility.

Figure 2: Close-up of the eight by eight array of thermocouple sensors.

Figure 3: Close-up of a single thermocouple sensor and its access transistor. The x- and y-addressing is accomplished using a dual-gate NMOS transistor. Only the thermocouple whose access transistor is fully ON will deliver an output signal.

Figure 4: Close-up of the x- and y-decoder circuitry.
