Abstract
The development of IR detectors will be traced from early polycrystalline film detectors to single crystal intrinsic detectors prepared from III-V compounds,as well as extrinsic detectors prepared from Ge and Si to the most recent detectors prepared from the ternary compounds HgCdTe and PbSnTe. The characteristics and methods for changing them to fill particular needs will be discussed.
