Paper Abstract

A 1-5 micrometers astronomical infrared imaging camera, COMIC, is currently being developed for the ADONIS adaptive optics system, as a collaborative project of Observatoire de Paris and Observatoire de Grenoble under ESO (European Space Observatory) contract. This camera is based on a 128 by 128 HgCdTe/CCD array built by the CEA-LETI-LIR (Grenoble, France). Among its main characteristics, this detector offers a very high storage capacity of 3 106 e- with a total system read-out noise of about 600 e- which makes it particularly optimized for the 3-5 mum. COMIC will be installed in the fall of 1995 at the output focus of the ADONIS AO system on the ESO 3.6-m telescope at La Silla (Chile).
