Paper Abstract

A model for staring focal plane arrays is described. The model characterizes two types of detectors, the platinum silicide (PtSi) Schottky-barrier diode and the mercury-cadmiun-tellurium (MCT) detector. The MCT devices provide high performance in both the 3-5-micron and 8-12-micron regions, while the Schottky devices, functioning only in the 3-5-micron band, provide high density and economy.
