1 December 1980 Pulse-Bias Modulation Of A PbS Mosaic Array
Author Affiliations +
Two-dimensional x-y addressed mosaic arrays of more than 12,000 lead-sulfide detectors each (64 by 192 detectors in an active area slightly larger than 6.4 by 19 mm) have been successfully developed and demonstrated at Aerojet ElectroSystems Company. This paper describes the pulse-bias modulation concept used to operate the detectors and multiplex their outputs and the design and fabrication techniques used to implement this concept. The measured performance of an array which was independently verified by the Naval Ocean Systems Center in San Diego is described, and data for an additional 10 modules (a total of more than 105 detectors) are summarized
