Paper Abstract

This paper briefly discusses the detector technologies suitable for incorporation into large two dimensional infrared arrays. The discussion is limited to technologies that are, or might become, compatible with silicon processing. This approach is seen as the best way to produce large area arrays in sufficient quantities and at a low enough cost to allow widespread use of infrared systems. Some aspects of the components that go to make up the subsystem are discussed, such as cooling engines.
