Paper Abstract

Mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) photoconductive detectors which detect radiation in the 10.6 micron spectral region are considered with respect to specific applications at varying temperatures. Requirements such as sensitivity, time constant, and cooling constraints are discussed. MCT detectors employed in the 10 to 11 micron spectral region successfully detect fast laser pulses.
