Definitions for "Detector"
Any of various devices for detecting the presence of electric waves.
A device for sensing vehicles and collecting traffic data. A detector may be embedded in the roadway pavement (e.g., inductive loop detector) or placed above the roadway (e.g., passive acoustic detector).
A device by which vehicle or pedestrian traffic registers its presence. The most common detectors are the inductive loop detectors for vehicles and the push-button detectors for pedestrians.
A device suitable for connection to a circuit having a sensor that responds to a physical stimulus such as heat or smoke.
Refers to the actual component of the sensor system that interacts with reflected or emitted energy. For film - based systems this is the individual silver halide crystals of the film emulsion.
A sensor used for the detection of some form of energy. Usually this term is used to refer to the device used in nuclear logging tools to detect neutrons and gamma rays. See scintillation counter and Geiger-Mueller counter.
a matched filter with variable length relative amplitude sliding template
a small piece of a semiconductor material which is photosensitive, ie its electrical properties will change when illuminated by light of a given wavelength
A circuit that produces a low frequency output signal, typically DC or video, whose amplitude is dependent upon the RF incident power level. The semiconductor element in a detector is typically a Schottky diode, FET or a tunnel diode.
