Abstract
The present study of silicon based impurity band photoconductors evolves from the development of a space borne instrument for spectroscopy of the atmosphere using far infrared thermal emission of relevant molecular species1 in the spectral range 80 to 400 cm-1. Actually, the spectral range from 200 to 400 cm-1 in which, for example, the key N205 molecule has a strong signature, is not well covered by the standard available Beryllium doped Germanium (Ge:Be) photoconductors which suffer from poor quantum efficiency in this region.. They are also quite sensitive to cosmic ray particles due to their large volume. In addition, only a few different materials are available because of the difficult crystal growth process.
