Abstract
We describe an infrared imaging photometer employing a monolithic 32x32 pixel bismuth doped silicon charge injection device array. The device is primarily useful in the 8-13 pm atmospheric window. The detector is sufficiently sensitive to provide good performance on ground-based telescopes and promises to be very good for low background space flight operation.
