|Abstract: ||One of the simplest device realizations of the classic particle-in-the-box problem of basic quantum mechanics is the Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector (QWIP). Optimization of the detector design and material growth and processing has culminated in the realization of a 15 ??utoff 128x128 focal plane array camera and a camera with large (256x256 pixel) focal plane array of QWIPs which can see at 8.5 ??holding forth great promise for a variety of applications in the 6-25 ??avelength range. This paper discusses the physics of the QWIP and QWIP technology development at Jet Propulsion Laboratory|
