Abstract
Low-noise pixel-based amplification via sub-micron CMOS is enabling advanced focal plane arrays offering ultra-low read noise for infrared astronomy, wave-front sensing, IR spectroscopy, spaceborne sensors and other discriminating uses. Specifically, we report the achievement of less than 30 e- read noise at video frame rates using capacitive transimpedance amplification and less than 1 e- using an enhanced form of gate modulation. We also compare several low- noise IR FPAs at various cutoff wavelengths from 1.1 micrometer to nearly 17 micrometer.
