Paper Abstract

The paper contains a review of works on nonselective thermal radiation detectors, published and discussed in recent years in the USSR: pyroelectrical detectors, detectors based on thermo-elastic effect of quartz, semiconductor bolometers, cryogenic bolometers, opto- acoustical detectors, thermoelectrical detectors. In the USSR all types of thermal detectors are used in various parts of the infrared region. Every two years a scientific conferences on thermal detectors takes place, where authors submit about 70 papers on pyroelectrical detectors, bolometers, thermoelectrical detectors, opto-acoustical detectors, on radiometric devices, optical materials, used in detectors, and on metrology in infrared region. This paper focuses on materials.
