Paper Abstract

The status of development and characterization tests of integrated infrared detector array technology for astronomical applications is described. The devices under development include intrinsic, extrinsic silicon, and extrinsic germanium detectors, with hybrid silicon multiplexers. Laboratory test results and successful astronomical imagery have established the usefulness of integrated arrays in low-background astronomical applications.
