I am Alexander Bondarenko, the author of a book "Mathematical modeling of a pyroelectric detector".
As the pyroelectric detector being an electronic component and this forum is more related to theory articles, I decided to upload the book here.
Further, I developed a simulator for the detector provided with different settings. You can see the videos here
Is there anyone who is interested in advanced understanding of the thermal-to-electrical model for a pyroelectric detector?
P.S. I am on linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/in/pyrodetector/
The book offers a step-by-step guide to mathematical modeling of the thermalto-
electrical model of a pyroelectric detector. It contains the solutions to ten
problems. The first eight problems are related to processes running in the body of
the sensitive element from heating or cooling to generating electrical charges in
response. The last two problems examine the transformation of input electrical
charges to output voltage when the sensitive element is connected to high-megohm
electronics. Every solution starts with the equation for the law of conservation of
energy and ends with that of the transient response. In order to make reading easier,
the author provides almost every equation with corresponding units of
measurement which are extremely useful not only for beginners, but also for
advanced readers. The book can be recommended to amateurs, undergraduate and
graduate students, teachers, engineers, who want to develop advanced knowledge
better concerning to the thermal-to-electrical model of pyroelectric detectors.
