A radio frequency bolometer was realized using a thermistor fabricated from a carbon nanotube thin-film deposited on a sapphire substrate. Power detection performance was characterized at room and liquid nitrogen temperatures. With the thermistor held at a temperature of 15 °C, the bolometer’s sensitivity of 915-MHz test signals was found to be 0.36 mV/mW… CONTINUE READING
