Abstract
A new type of photodetector with an optical sensor is presented, which enables it to operate even in the presence of strong electro-magnetic interference. The optical sensor head consists of cascaded Fabry-Perot etalons coated with a new type of photo-thermal coating comprising of hydrogel-embedded copper-oxide micro-particles. For white-light irradiation, the photodetector exhibits a power sensitivity of 760 pm/mW, a detection limit of 16.4 μW, and an optical damage threshold of ∼100 mW or ∼800 mW/cm2. The response and recovery times are 3.0 s (∼90% of change within 100 ms) and 16.0 s.
