Abstract : The invention provides a means for stabilizing the thermal operating point of a thermistor bolometer. The detector block on which the thermistors are mounted is maintained at a predetermined temperature. The compensating thermistor mounted on the detector block is connected in a Wheatstone Bridge configuration to thereby cause a signal to be generated which causes Peltier cooling or heating of the block as the situation requires.
