Paper Abstract

With the introduction of the Raytheon 2.5 micron HgCdTe VIRGO detector array, some astronomy programs, such as the VISTA Program, are turning to Raytheon for near infrared detector arrays. We characterize one VIRGO detector array and provide results of measurements at low backgrounds including dark current, read noise, total noise, quantum efficiency, and operability. The Raytheon VIRGO HgCdTe detector arrays are excellent candidates for many low background astronomical programs, including space-borne telescope missions.
