With the objective to quantify the suitability of PVDF films as IR detector materials, when using the surface resistivity mechanism, instead of pyroelectricity, the surface resistivity surface effect detectivity D* was reported when considering bolometry. Finally, for comparative and suitability purposes, the author also reports the frequency and temperature dependence dielectric constant measures of pure- and MWCNT:PVDF films in frequencies up to 10 MHZ, using Agilent's model 4294 Impedance Analyzer coupled to its 1645IB test fixture.
Bolometry, the measurement of minute amounts of radiant energy, is a key application for this highly sensitive photodiode.
Resistive heating of the sample for an applied electrical field is characterized through infrared (IR) bolometry. The IR images of resistive heating in the composite lead to better understanding of heat transfer and temperature distribution for healing a simulated damage.
