Paper Abstract

The 1990s saw the rapid evolution of staring IR focal plane arrays (FPAs), with array formats progressing from 128 by 128 arrays at the beginning of the decade, to 1K by 1K arrays in low-rate production at the end of the decade. The maturation of large-format staring FPAs has given astronomers new capabilities for wide-field, high-resolution imaging and spectroscopy. The trends that emerged in the 1990s are continuing with larger format FPAs currently under development.
