We are developing a stressed Ge:Ga 2D array detector that will be used for balloon-borne and satellite-born astronomical observations at wavelength between 100 and 200 micrometers . We have succeeded in making a 4 X 8 element stressed array detector with a stress of 600 N/mm2 and responsivity peak wavelength moved to about 165 micrometers . This has the largest number of pixels at the present time. The responsivities of the detector are high enough as well as those currently in use. This detector has a compact structure and a small total pixel size, and thus, it can be used for satellite-born instruments that have severe space limitation.
