Abstract
Infrared radiation is detected and converted to electrical signals by either thermal detectors or photon detectors. Development of focal plane arrays based on these processes continues with progress achieved in increased uniformity for photon detectors and increased sensitivity for thermal detectors. The current state of development for several materials for infrared focal plane arrays is discussed and recent developments reviewed. Applications and requirements for infrared focal plane arrays are described.
