Paper Abstract

An optimally designed GaAs/AlGaAs broadband Quantum Well IR Photodetector QWIP Focal Plane Array FPA is fabricated and hybridized to a 640 × 512 Read Out Integrated Circuit with 25μm pixel pitch. The substrate-thinned and LCC mounted FPA was loaded into a dewar and cooled to liquid Neon temperature for characterization. The temperature of the FPA was stabilized at 35K several minutes after power was applied. We will report on the NEΔT, QE, uniformity, and D* result.
