8 November 1984 The Advent Of Three-Dimensional Imaging Array Architectures: A Perspective
Author Affiliations +
A brief historical progression in infrared imaging from single element detectors to the state-of-the-art two-dimensional hybrid arrays is reviewed. A demand for higher device performance has revealed many of the disadvantages that are inherent with two-dimensional imaging array architecture. The advent of three-dimensional architectures is traced according to the evolution of these concepts. Several configurations are described and con-trasted. The future for three-dimensional imaging arrays is assessed based upon increased performance potential and the technical difficulties that must be overcome.
