24 October 2012 Characterization of type II SLS n-CBIRD focal plane array
Author Affiliations +
New generation of focal plane arrays (FPAs) based on type II SLS, which are hybrids of detector array and Read Out Integrated Circuits (ROIC), present extraordinary challenge to characterize. The standard performance metrics are: temporal NEΔT, noise equivalent irradiance (NEI), quantum efficiency, dark current and modulation transfer function (MTF). Imaging system modulation Transfer Function (MTF) is an important quantitative metric of performance in spatial domain, but it is rarely reported in the literature especially for type II SLS. MTF measurement is believed to be a good metric of performance for camera systems in addition to standard performance parameters. The paper will report on the characterization of complimentary barrier infrared detector n-CBIRD FPA.
