Abstract: We propose the application of nitroanisole as a detector for middle infrared (mid-IR) interferometry or holography. The present experiment utilizes the liquid form of nitroanisole, which has a thermal lens effect, i.e. a temperature dependent refractive index. Since the nitroanisole absorbs IR radiation as heat, it is possible to estimate the IR intensity distribution on the nitroanisole from the diffraction pattern made by visible laser light that is transmitted through the nitroanisole. In this study, the time resolution and the diffraction efficiency of the nitroanisole was measured under various conditions. The experimental results show that the nitroanisole has a time resolution as high as that of a standard video camera, as well as a high diffraction efficiency and the spatial resolution equivalent to that of a conventional IR camera. Furthermore, we confirmed that the phase shift in mid-IR region can be estimated by analyzing the change in the visible diffraction pattern.
