Title: Thermal sensor with an improved coating

Abstract

The disclosure is directed to an apparatus for detecting radiation having wavelengths from about 0.4 ..mu..m to about 5.6 ..mu..m. An optical coating is applied to a thermal sensor that is normally transparent to radiation with such wavelengths. The optical coating is thin and light and includes a modifier and an absorber. The thermal sensor can be a pyroelectric detector such as strontium barium niobate.
