This new edition of Infrared and Terahertz Detectors provides a comprehensive overview of infrared and terahertz detector technology, from fundamental science to materials and fabrication techniques. It contains a complete overhaul of the contents including several new chapters and a new section on terahertz detectors and systems. It includes a new tutorial introduction to technical aspects that are fundamental for basic understanding. The other dedicated sections focus on thermal detectors, photon detectors, and focal plane arrays.
Antoni Rogalski is a professor at the Institute of Applied Physics, Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Poland. He is one of the world's leading researchers in the field of infrared (IR) optoelectronics. He has made pioneering contributions in the area of theory, design and technology of different types of IR detectors. In 1997, he received an award from the Foundation for Polish Science, the most prestigious scientific award in Poland, for achievements in the study of ternary alloy systems for infrared detectors. In 2004, he was elected as a corresponding member of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Prof. Rogalski is a Fellow of the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), Vice President of the Polish Optoelectronic Committee, Vice President of the Electronic and Telecommunication Division at the Polish Academy of Science, Editor-in-Chief of Opto-Electronics Review, and editorial board member of international journals. He has been chair and co-chair, organizer and member of scientific committees of many national and international conferences on optoelectronic devices and material sciences.
