Paper Abstract

Pyroelectric detectors are thermal sensors which monitor change in radiation power and are therefore well suited to surveillance applications. They operate without cooling and are readily used in alarm systems which are self contained, have low power consumption and are sensitive while maintaining an excellent false alarm rate.
