We have evaluated the responsivity of seven different detectors compared to an electrically calibrated photo-acoustic detector at 119 υm (2.5 THz) and 394 υm (0.76 THz) laser wavelengths. Among the detectors is an electrically calibrated thermopile having a vertically aligned carbon nanotube array (VANTA) as the absorber. The measurement results indicate that the nanotube-coated detector has relatively high and uniform responsivity compared to the photoacoustic detector. We document the relative uncertainty of these measurements along with the calibration factor of each detector.
