Abstract
The most rapid technical and industrial development in electroptics are now in the fields of optical telecommunications and infrared imaging. The evolution towards the infrared regions (0.8 μm then 1.3 μm and 1.55 μm) of spectral windows used in fiber telecommunications bring them nearer and nearer. Therefore and specially as far as detection functions are concerned parallels very useful in both directions, can be drawn between imagery ans telecommunications. These parallels will be analyzed herein from a fundamental point of view as well as technical and industrial, an interesting example will particularly be studied:the case of HgCdTe technologies that allow to cover both fields from the same semi-conductor.
