This paper reviews and assesses back-illuminated P-on-n photovoltaic HgCdTe detector technology, based on two-layer growth by Liquid Phase Epitaxy on CdZnTe substrates, for application at wavelengths beyond 15 μm in a new generation of spaceborne multispectral instruments for remote sensing. We review data that show feasibility of useful cutoff wavelengths as long as 18-19 μm. We recommend that that LPE photovoltaic HgCdTe technology be extended to the 20-25 μm wavelength region for single elements and small arrays for NASA remote-sensing applications.
