Paper Abstract

HgCdTe is very unique material system for infrared (IR) detection. In combination with its lattice matched native substrate CdZnTe, this semiconductor alloy allows to address the whole infrared (IR) band, from the near IR (NIR, 2?m cutoff) to the middle wave IR (MWIR, 5μm cutoff), the long wave IR (LWIR, 10μm cutoff), up to the very long wave IR (VLWIR, cutoffs larger than 14μm).
