Abstract : The patent disclosure is directed to a liquid crystal detector for imaging high power infrared laser beams. The system includes at least one detector screen associated with a container including boiling a solution therein to maintain a constant temperature for the detector screen. The detector screen is operative to produce a visible image of incident infrared laser light. The boiling solution not only maintains a constant temperature for the liquid crystal medium but provides a means for dissipating the heat of the laser beam which further heats the solution to form a vapor or steam at a controlled constant pressure.
