Paper Abstract

In(x)Ga(1-x)As detector linear arrays with 256 and 512 elements have been made for the 1.0-1.7 micron spectrum (x = 0.53) and 1.4-2.6 microns (x = 0.8) with 30 x 30, 30 x 100, and 25 x 500 micron pixel sizes. Room temperature D* values beyond 1 x 10 exp 13 W/cm-sq rt Hz (at 1.7 micron) and 1 x 10 exp 11 W/cm-sq rt Hz (at 2.5 microns) are reported. A 128 x 128 element In(0.53)Ga(0.47)As detector array with less than 1 percent dropouts is also described. High reliability is also reported for these arrays. Future improvements needed include lower-noise multiplexers and the use of zero-bias multiplexers.
