Description This paper deals with the possibility of using a common video camera as a detector of near infrared radiation in physical demonstrations. After a brief theoretical description of the physical basis of infrared detection, the set of experiments is presented. Most of the experiments can be done with relatively simple and easily accessible equipment. These experiments are intended for use in physics courses at all educational levels, ranging from basic schools up to universities.
