Infrared imaging camera based on a Rydberg atom photodetector

A type of infrared imaging camera is demonstrated that uses gas-phase Rydberg atoms as photocathodes. The camera operates throughout the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum: l51 – 100 mm. The first results are presented and the potential of the camera as an ultrafast detector and a wavelength selective detector is discussed.
