Paper Abstract

Features of the flight hardware version of the NICMOS 256 X 256 mercury-cadmium- telluride (MCT) detector array for the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) are presented and described. Detector flowdown requirements for flight production are reviewed and discussed. Detector cross section and array architecture features are analyzed in relation to quantum efficiency and crosstalk behavior. Features of the charge integration scheme employed are analyzed in assessing dynamic range.
