Paper Abstract

Ghosting between detector and window surfaces is a common source of stray light in packaged detectors. Simple formulas are presented for predicting window ghost characteristics. Stray light paths in silicon detectors, which are semi-transparent to near-infrared light, can involve non-optical structures deep within the device. Methods for identifying subsurface stray light paths are presented.
