  • thermistor

A solid-state semiconducting structure (basically one of the bolometers) that changes electrical resistance with temperature. Materially, some kind of ceramic composition is used. A thermistor has much higher electrical resistance than metallic bolometers and hence requires much higher voltages to become useful.
