Indium antimonide photovoltaic detector parameters which are critical to the design of high-performance focal planes have been measured and are reported. Detector capacitances as a function of voltage, area and temperature are presented and the data is shown to agree well with the abrupt junction model. Resistance-area products as a function of temperature have also been measured; values as high as 1011Ω -cm2 at 50 K. are reported. In addition, fabrication techniques are discussed which can minimize additional capacitances to the diode, as well as maximize the area definition.
