Abstract

The extent to which the thermal capacitance and resistance of a black coating on a pyroelectric detector offset the gain in optical absorptance is investigated. A black paint is shown to be of little value, but a coating of gold–black may increase the detector responsivity for modulation frequencies up to at least several kilohertz. When a coated pyroelectric detector is calibrated electrically, a correction is necessary for the thermal impedance of the black. For gold–blacks of superficial density 2 g m−2, this correction is shown to be less than 2% for frequencies within the 0–100-Hz range.
