Paper Abstract

The SAFIRE (Spectroscopy of the Atmosphere using Far-Infrared Emission) spaceborne instrument is discussed. The aim of SAFIRE is to improve understanding of the ozone distribution in the middle atmosphere by conducting global scale measurements of the important chemical, radiative, and dynamical processes which influence it changes. The SAFIRE FIR focal plane arrays are reviewed and the selection of photoconductive material, is examined. The Blocked Impurity Band (BIB) technology used in the detector is discussed. Finally, recent developments in Ge:Ga photoconductor stress technology are summarized.
