What are the different uses of Pyroelectric IR Detectors and Sensors?
Pyroelectric IR detection is a process that involves using a class of materials that exhibit the ability to generate an electric charge or voltage when subjected to temperature changes for the detection infrared (IR) radiation. Pyroelectric materials are typically sensitive to IR radiation, which allows detectors to sense even minute changes in IR radiation among living and non-living bodies. These capabilities are then applied to applications that call for motion detection, presence sensing, temperature measurement, gas detection, spectroscopy and energy management, among others.
