Paper Abstract

Pyroelectric detector technology has emerged from the status of laboratory curiosity to provide a wide variety of practical sensors and instruments. The characteristics of pyroelectrics are described and compared with those of other infrared detectors. Principles of operation and important design considerations and material properties are discussed. A number of instruments and their applications are described.
