The infrared emission properties of an electrically heated single resistive element produced by ion implantation of diamond is reported. It is found that good contrast can be obtained between the implanted and unimplanted regions of the diamond mainly because of the increased emissivity following implantation. The infrared output is stronger if the diamond is viewed with the implanted surface facing away from the detector. The possible utilization of diamond-based pixels in infrared scene generation is discussed.
