linear detector

detector for which the output is proportional to the input over a specified range of inputs, so that the responsivity of the detector is constant over that range

NOTE 1 A detector is usually linear only over a certain limited range of input levels. The range should be specified.

NOTE 2 The linear range of a detector may be affected by the use of unsuitable electronic circuitry.
