Paper Abstract

IRnova has a long history of producing QWIPs for the LWIR band. In this paper we give an overview of the current products (FPAs with 640x480 and 384x288 pixels respectively, and 25 μm pitch) and their performance. Their superior stability and uniformity inherent to detectors based on III/V material system will be demonstrated. Furthermore, an IDCA specifically designed for hand-held systems used for the detection of SF6 gas using a 0.5 W cooler will be presented. The detector format is 320x256 pixels with 30 μm pitch using the ISC9705 read out circuit. The peak wavelength is at 10.55 μm and the NETD is 22 mK.
