Paper Abstract

We present both laboratory and telescope testing results describing the performance of the H4RG-10 CMOS-Hybrid detector. The H4RG-10 is the largest visible hybrid array currently in existence and shows great potential for use in future space missions. We report read noise, dark current, pixel connectivity, persistence, and inter-pixel capacitance measurements for the temperature range 110-240 K. We report on quantitative astrometric and qualitative photometric performance of the instrument based on observations made at USNO's Flagstaff Station observatory and establish an upper limit to the astrometric performance of the detector. We discuss additional testing and future work associated with improving detector performance.
