Heterojunction GexSi1-x/Si internal-photoemission infrared detectors are being developed for multispectral imaging in the middle-wavelength infrared (MWIR) and long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) spectral bands. The detectors, which are fabricated by molecular beam epitaxy of degenerately doped GexSi1-x heteroepitaxial layers on Si, exhibit high responsivity uniformity, low dark-current noise, tunable cutoff wavelength out to 25 μm, and excellent producibility. High-quality MWIR and LWIR thermal imagery has been obtained for 320-x 244- and 400- x 400-element focal plane arrays consisting of GexSi1-x/Si detectors with cutoff wavelength of ~10 μm and monolithic CCD readout circuitry.
