Abstract
In this paper D* is introduced, and analyzed as a figure of merit for focal plane arrays. Some of the inadequacies of D* are presented, and used to motivate the use of the signal to noise ratio as a figure of merit. Spatial noise (nonuniformity) is incorporated into the signal to noise ratio and its effects are examained for the cases of a Schottky barrier, and standard photon detector (constant quantum efficiency) over the 3 to 5 μm spectral band.
