Abstract : The patent describes a fast response, room temperature integrated optical bolometer for the detection of infrared radiation. The detector element forms a waveguide boundary layer therefore the detector element is a part of the waveguide and measures the radiation which travels parallel with the detector layer. It is suitable for measuring laser light output.
