Paper Abstract

The status of laboratory and telescope tests of integrated infrared detector array technology for astronomical applications is described. The devices tested represent a number of extrinsic and intrinsic detector materials, and various multiplexer designs. IR arrays have now been used in successful astronomical applications. These have proven that device sensitivities can be comparable to those of discrete detector systems, and that excellent astronomical imagery can be produced.
