Abstract

It is shown to be theoretically possible to use three-level molecular systems as a basis for creating arrays of uncooled bolometric detectors that convert a thermal image into a visible image and possess sensitivity as good as that of semiconductor bolometers. The optimum characteristics of the material of the proposed detectors are calculated. A laboratory prototype of an array of molecular detectors has been created and demonstrates that they have a number of technological advantages.
