Title: Optical radiation detectors

Abstract

This book covers the capabilities and limitations of optical radiation detectors. It introduces background material on radiometry, noise sources, and detector physics before proceeding to more detailed discussions of photon detectors, thermal detectors, and charge transfer arrays of detectors. Contents: Radiometry. Introduction to Detector Physics and Nomenclature. Photovoltaic Detection Theory. Photoconductors. Photoemissive Detector Theory. Thermal Detectors and Thermopiles. Bolometers. Pyroelectric Detectors. Charge Transfer Devices. Appendixes. Index.
