We report our recent developments of antimonide based infrared photodetectors utilizing a complementary barrier infrared detector (CBIRD) design. The new generation of devices can operate close to zero bias with the same quantum efficiency as the initial design. 320x256 pixel long-wavelength infrared focal plane arrays utilizing optimized design have been demonstrated with 8.8 μm cutoff wavelength and noise equivalent differential temperature of 26 mK at operating temperature of 80 K for 300 K background and f/2 optics. As CBIRD detectors became valuable candidates for space-based instruments, question of their radiation tolerance became important. Here, we report our investigations of the proton irradiation effects on the photodetector performance.
