Paper Abstract

This paper describes measured characteristics of Bismuth thin film detector assemblies as they are used in different laser power and laser beam centroid position measuring applications. These uncooled detectors are insensitive to wavelength over a wide range of the spectrum (visible and infrared to at least 10.6 microns) and they have relatively wide bandwidth characteristics, that make them very useful in many applications.
