Abstract : A thin film thermoelectric pile is an infrared probe element without selectivity with respect to the optical spectrum. The performance indicators of a thermoelectric pile are stable; its structure is firm, sensitivity is high, and response time is short, and the response range of the optical spectrum is wide. A thin film thermoelectric pile can operate at normal temperatures for measuring direct current. The instruments and meters involved do not require additional bias and do not require an adjustment system. Since the pile has its unique advantages, its applications are wide, used as reception elements for noncontact temperature measuring instrumentation, infrared interference alarm instruments, and hot-metal position detectors.
