Paper Abstract

A 256 x 256 element InSb array developed for low-background commercial applications is described, focusing on the signal and noise performance and the spatial uniformity of these parameters. The arrays are characterized by high operability, good uniformity, the quantum efficiency close to theoretical, low red noise, and dark currents in the 10 exp -17 amp range.
