Terahertz Pyroelectric Detector

Manufacturer's part number :



Microtech Instruments

Description :

The pyro-electric detector based on LiTaO3 crystal, is designed for registration of modulated electromagnetic radiation in the millimetre and sub-millimetre wavelength range. At square wave modulation of radiation, the saw-tooth signal voltage from the detector is proportional to the intensity of radiation. A black filter is mounted on the detector input to prevent parasitic illumination in visible and infrared regions. The detector is equipped with a standard BNC connector.
