Abstract
A 10-16 μm cutoff large format broadband quantum well infrared photodetector (QWIP) focal plane array (FPA) has been demonstrated. The size of the FPA is 640 X 512 and its pixel pitch is 25 microns. The highest operating temperature of the FPA is 45 K, and it was determined by the charge storage capacity and the other features of the particular readout multiplexer used in this demonstration. Excellent imagery, with a noise equivalent differential temperature (NE(Delta) T) of 55 mK has been achieved. In this presentation, we will discuss the development of this large format broadband infrared FPA based on a GaAs/AlGaAs materials system and its performance in quantum efficiency, NE(Delta) T, uniformity, and operability.
