Moll thermopile

Postby Dave Moll » Tue Feb 11, 2020 8:05 pm

Following on from this thread, I have been reading the book about John Logie Baird.

In the chapter about noctovision, reference is made to the use of a "Moll thermopile" for infra-red detection. The name being the same as mine, I decided to ask Google to tell me more about this device. Although I can find plenty of references to what it does, how it works and how many dollars people want to sell me one, I can't find anything about the history of how it got its name - of who (or what) was this mysterious Moll.
