Bilayer films, composed of a thin-layer of pyroresistive submicrometer sized crystals on top of a polymeric thin-film, can be used both as a direct-contact thermometer and as passive infrared sensor. These materials are capable of detecting, radiation of a wide-range of wavelengths very rapidly and reversibly, as well as recognizing distant objects with applications in robotics, biomedicine, and human health care.
