1 September 1990 Temperature limitations to infrared detectors
Author Affiliations +
An attempt is made to determine an absolute lower limit on the noise of a quantum detector. A comparison is made between several types of detectors and the absolute limit curve. The equations of Kinch (1989) for XSi are used as well as those of Forrseter et al. (1989) for a superconductor.
