21 August 1998 Near-IR arrays for ground-based and space-based astronomy
Author Affiliations +
This paper is a review of current astronomy projects at Raytheon/SBRC in the near-IR band. Another paper in this same session (3354-11) covers astronomy projects in longer wavelengths. For ground-based astronomy, InSb arrays with formats of 256 X 256, 512 X 512, and 1024 X 1024 have been developed and tested. For space-based astronomy, four projects are discussed with array formats ranging from 256 X 256 to 2K X 2K. The space projects support instruments on the SIRTF, IRIS, NGST, and Rosetta missions. Representative data are presented from 1024 X 1024 and 256 X 256 arrays obtained by test facilities at NOAO and the University of Rochester.
