Paper Abstract

In 1973, Shepherd and Yang proposed silicide Schottky-barrier detector (SBD) arrays for infrared thermal imaging (11. Infrared image sensors with 25 x 50 and 256 x 1 SBDs with thick PtSi film (~ 1000 A) were demonstrated in 1978 [2, 3]. The major breakthrough in the improvement of the responsivity of PtSi SBDs by about two orders of magnitude came with the introduction of SBDs with optical cavity having a thin (20 to 50 A) PtSi film [4-7].
