Pixel-array Quantum Cascade Detector Paves the Way for Portable Thermal Imaging Devices

WASHINGTON- The primary source of infrared radiation is heat — the radiation produced by the thermal motion of charged particles in matter, including the motion of the atoms and molecules in an object. The higher the temperature of an object, the more its atoms and molecules vibrate, rotate, twist through their vibrational modes, the more
