An analytical model that predicted the behavior of microcalorimeters and bolometers was developed. The model included the effect of hot electrons in the detector sensor, a thermal decoupling between absorber and sensor, and the effect of a nonohmic thermometers. The model analytically predicted the detector responsivity and expected noise under given conditions. The performance of bolometers and microcalorimeters using block diagram algebra were also described.
