Paper Abstract

A unique process for fabricating HgCdTe photodiodes directly on a variety of substrate materials has been developed. This process, which can achieve fill factors in excess of 90%, has the advantages of minimal thermal mismatch, less than 1% crosstalk and scaling to large array sizes. This structure consists of thin, fully delineated HgCdTe detector ele-ments bonded to a substrate which contains CCD's or individual lead-outs for each detector. The junctions are connected with a common grid electrode. D* (4.5μm) of 1.3 x 1010cmHz2/w has been achieved in 4 x 4 element arrays fabricated directly on silicon substrates. These arrays have immediate applications in mosaic sizes up to 4000 detectors and future development potential of 128 x 128 electronically scanned focal planes.
