Abstract : The development of video detection techniques which are appropriate for the millimeter and submillimeter range of the spectrum are described. Wafers of TGS have been mounted in both RG 99/U and RG 139/U waveguides for tests of the pyroelectric effect detector. It is estimated that the detector, when mounted in RG 139/U waveguide, is capable of detecting a 104 micro watt signal at a wavelength of 0.845 mm. An error in calculation of the beam waveguide reflector shape has been corrected. Experimental results are only slightly affected by the change in the reflector shape. (Author)
