Paper Abstract

A direct coupling experiment between a 5-micrometer photo-voltaic mercury-cadmium telluride detector and a CCD multiplexer is reported. No detectable degradation in signal-to-noise ratio was experienced and D*x peak = 1.6 x 1011 cm Hz1/2/W (BLIP) was obtained after the CCD multiplexer, when the photodiode at 77°K was irradiated by the 300 K background with 180-degree field of view, chopped at 723 Hz.
