The Infrared Camera (IRC) is one of two focal-plane instruments on the AKARI satellite. It is designed for wide-field deep imaging and low-resolution spectroscopy in the near- to mid-infrared (1.8-26.5 micron) in the pointed observation mode of AKARI. The IRC is also operated in the survey mode to make an All-Sky Survey at 9 and 18 microns. The IRC is composed of three channels. The NIR channel (1.8-5.5 micron) employs a 512×412 InSb photodiode array, whereas both the MIR-S (4.6-13.4 micron) and MIR-L (12.6-26.5 micron) channels use 256×256 Si:As impurity band conduction (IBC) arrays. Each of the three channels has a field-of-view of approximately 10×10 arcmin., and they are operated simultaneously. The NIR and MIR-S channels share the same field-of-view by virtue of a beam splitter. The MIR-L observes the sky about 25 arcmin. away from the NIR/MIR-S field-of-view. The in-flight performance of the IRC has been confirmed to be in agreement with the pre-fiight expectation. More than 4000 pointed observations dedicated for the IRC are successfully completed, and more than 90% of the sky are covered by the all-sky survey before the exhaustion of the Akari's cryogen. The focal-plane instruments are currently cooled by the mechanical cooler and only the NIR channel is still working properly. Brief introduction, in-flight performance and scientific highlights from the IRC cool mission, together with the result of performance test in the warm mission, are presented.
