Abstract:

This is an invention in the field of measurement technology. Pyroelectric radiation detectors are known which contain a sensitive element with two electrodes, which are sprayed onto a surface and are perpendicular to the direction of polarization. When such a pyrodetector is exposed to a radiant flux, the information obtained does not provide information on the coordinates of the focused radiation. The proposed pyroelectric detector is distinguished from the above by the fact that the electrodes, which are applied to the sensitive element, are arranged on the plane parallel to the direction of spontaneous polarization, and one of them is made in the form of a strip directed perpendicular to the direction of polarization. This makes it possible to obtain the coordinate sensitivity of the detector in the direction of polarization.
