14 May 2018 The status of MCT detector development at ASELSAN
Author Affiliations +
ASELSAN A.S., the largest defense company in Turkey, initiated research activities on developing Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) detectors in 2014. These research activities include bulk crystal growth and surface preparation of Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) substrates, Molecular Beam Epitaxial (MBE) growth of MCT layers, MCT detector fabrication, Read-Out-Integrated-Circuit (ROIC) design and detector-dewar-cooler (DDCA) assembly development. Focal plane arrays with resolutions/pixel pitches of 320x256/30 μm and 640x512/15 μm are fabricated. Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference (NETD) of 320x256 FPA is 11 mK (f#/1.5, 77K) while the operability is 98.2%. 640x512 FPA provides NETD of 32 mK (f#/1.5, 77K) and the operability is 93.2%.
