Abstract:

Research is concerned with new detectors or detection techniques for surveillance applications. Detectors of action at a distance phenomena are considered with special attention given to biologic detectors. Emphasis is on sensitivity and representative detectors are compared in terms of quantum efficiency. Two experimental detectors are described and other detection schemes are suggested. Superregeneration is extended to the D.C. care where it is compared with the behavior of nerve membrane. It is concluded that detectors based on quantum mechanical principles offer the ultimate in sensitivity and frequency range while detectors based on neurophysiological schemes offer the ultimate in small size and high gain.
