Title: 16 歠Infrared Hot Electron Transistor
Authors: Gunapala, S. D.
Issue Date: Apr-1995
Citation: Orlando, Florida
Abstract: Very long wavelength infrared (VWIR) photodetectors, 14 歠20 歠, are of a great interest for variety of space-borne applications. These space applications have placed stringent requirements on the performance of the infrared detectors and arrays including high detectivity, low dark current, uniformity, radiation hardness and lower power dissipation. I will discuss the development and progress of AlxGal- xAs/GaAs VWIR quantum well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) to meet those stringent requirements and the demonstration of a 15 歠128x128 QWIP focal plane array camera. The noise equivalent temperature difference of the focal plane array is 30 mK at 300 K background, and operating temperature is 45 K.
