Paper Abstract

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) Near Infrared Spectrograph (NIRSpec) incorporates two 5 μm cutoff (λco =5 μm) 2048×2048 pixel Teledyne HgCdTe HAWAII-2RG sensor chip assemblies. These detector arrays, and the two Teledyne SIDECAR application specific integrated circuits that control them, are operated in space at Τ ~ 37 K. This article focuses on the measured performance of the first flight-candidate, and near-flight candidate, detector arrays. These are the first flight-packaged detector arrays that meet NIRSpec's challenging 6 e- rms total noise requirement. The current version of this paper has had a correction made to it at the request of the author. Please see the linked Errata for further details.
