Abstract
A review of the III-V Lab activities in the field of quantum well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) is presented. We discuss the specific advantages of this type of detector and present the production facilities and status. A large section is dedicated to broadband QWIPs for space applications and to QWIPs on InP for mid-wavelength infrared detection. We review the progress of QWIP technology for the next generation (dual band, polarimetric, and multispectral) of thermal imagers. Finally, the state-of-the-art of very long wavelength QWIPs is discussed.
