Infrared Detectors provides comprehensive coverage of this important aspect of infrared technology, including details of recent research efforts directed toward improving the performance of single element devices, large electronically scanned arrays, and higher operating temperatures. Discussions include HgCdTe detectors, Schottky barrier photoemissive devices, silicon, germanium, and InSb detectors, and quantum well infrared photodetectors. The author also considers IR thermal detectors, including details on phyroelectric detectors, micromachined silicon bolometers, and high Tc superconductor detectors.

Page 670 - HgCdTe is characterised by high optical absorption coefficient and quantum efficiency and relatively low thermal generation rate compared to extrinsic detectors and QWIPs. The extrinsic photon detectors require more cooling than intrinsic photon detectors having the same long wavelength limit.
