Paper Abstract

The paper presents progress in infrared (IR) detector technologies during two hundred history of their development. Classification of two types of infrared detectors (photon detectors and thermal detectors) is done on the basis of their principle of operation. The overview of infrared systems and detectors is presented. Recent progress in different IR technologies is described from a historical point of view. Discussion is concentrated mainly on current and the most rapidly developing detectors: HgCdTe heterostructure photodiodes, quantum well AlGaAs/GaAs photoresistors, and thermal detectors. The outlook for near-future trends in IR technologies is also presented.
