Description - Handbook of Infrared Detection Technologies by M. Henini
The use of lasers which emit infra-red radiation and sophisticated detectors of IR radiation is increasing dramatically: they are being used for long-distance fibre-optic communications and remote environmental monitoring and sensing. Thus they are of interest to the telecommunications industry and the military in particular. This book has been designed to bring together what is known on these devices, using an international group of contributors. Beginning with a comparison of the performance of photon and thermal detectors this volume focuses on the technologies used to build infra-red detection devices. It provides an overview of some of the materials that hold promise in the design and construction of more advanced devices.
