Infrared detectors are solid state devices that are the heart of a thermal imager. It is the detector which converts heat energy into an electric signal which is then converted to images and temperature data. Recent innovations in infrared detector design have led to reductions in both cost and size. This has allowed manufacturers to design amazing new thermal imagers. This article will discuss how we may be in the golden age of thermal imaging and will discuss some of the new innovations and how infrared is slowly becoming our sixth sense.
The isotherm feature found on modern thermal imagers is somewhat of a relic having been around for over 25 years. In simple terms, an isotherm feature allows a thermographer to visually highlight areas exhibiting a similar apparent temperature on the imager's monitor screen.

Thermogram shows warm thermal pattern caused by latent moisture in an insulated roof that has been retrofitted with spray applied urethane foam. Image taken from the roof surface during evening hours. Taken by Peter Hopkins, this thermal image was the 1st Place winner - Roof Category in the annual Image Contest held during the IR/INFO 2015 Conference.
