Paper Abstract

Photodetector arrays and architectures for optical processing, including acousto-optical (AO) signal processing applications such as spectrum analysis, for which the demands on photodetector arrays are substantially greater than for typical image sensing applications, are discussed. Critical parameters of AO photodetector arrays such as high dynamic range, high sensitivity, high speed, and low crosstalk are noted. The current status of and future needs for detector arrays for AO signal processing are presented. Nonconventional detector structures and concepts that have potential for future AO optical signal processing use are noted.
