9 January 1984 Infrared Array Detectors For The United Kingdom Infrared Telescope (UKIRT)
Author Affiliations +
The impact on ground-based IR astronomy of the new generation of infrared detector arrays which incorporate charge storage and multiplexed readout schemes on the focal plane array itself is considered. Plans for proposed instrumentation for UKIRT which will use such detector arrays are outlined. The new instruments will include a 1-5μm area mapping photometer and a low resolution 1-5pm cooled grating spectrometer. Preliminary work on the evaluation of certain types of arrays is described.
