Unlike photonic sensors that exploit the photoelectric effect to enable infrared imaging at cryogenic temperatures, uncooled thermal sensors work by allowing an infrared absorbing material to be heated by incident electromagnetic radiation to produce an image. Such thermal sensing devices, also known as bolometers, have traditionally been less sensitive and slower than their cooled photonic analogs.
