Paper Abstract

We present in this paper the performance of a linear array of 30 InSb 3-5 μm detectors multiplexed by a silicon CCD. The InSb detectors are photodiodes built on a p type InSb bulk substrate. The detector technololgy has been specially adapted for multiplexing detectors by n channel CCD's. The InSb detectors have a near-BLIP performance, are highly uniform and do not show any 1/f noise when reverse biased. The InSb array has been multiplexed in the focal plane by a n - channel CCD. The mean detectivity measured at the CCD output is 1.6 x 1011 cm W-1 Hz1/2. The photoresponse nonuniformity is smaller than ± 5 % and the dynamic range is 75 dB. The limiting factors of these kinds of arrays will be discussed.
