InAs/GaSb short-period superlattices (SL) for the fabrication of mono- and bispectral thermal imaging systems in the mid-wavelength infrared region (MWIR) have been optimized in order to increase the spectral response of the imaging systems. The responsivity in monospectral InAs/GaSb short-period superlattices increases with the number of periods in the intrinsic region of the diode and does not show a diffusion limited behavior for detector structures with up to 1000 periods. This allows the fabrication of InAs/GaSb SL camera systems with high responsivity. Dual-color MWIR/MWIR InAs/GaSb SL camera systems with high quantum efficiency for missile approach warning systems with simultaneous and spatially coincident detection in both spectral channels have been realized.
