Sensing the infrared: Researchers improve IR detectors with single-walled carbon nanotubes

Description (Optical Society of America) Whether used in telescopes or optoelectronic communications, infrared detectors must be continuously cooled to avoid being overwhelmed by stray thermal radiation. Now, a team of researchers from Peking University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Duke University is harnessing the remarkable properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes to create highly sensitive, "uncooled" photovoltaic infrared detectors.
