Paper Abstract

In this paper, the performance of high operating temperature (HOT) type-II superlattice FPAs (640 × 512 pixels @ 15 μm pitch), are demonstrated. The type-II superlattice design used for these FPAs has a cut-off wavelength of 5.3 μm and the quantum efficiency is extracted to 80% at FPA level. The HOT FPAs are integrated in IDDCAs with small size, weight and power (SWaP) with F#4 configuration. Excellent imaging performance is demonstrated at 110 K with temporal NETD of 21 mK, spatial NETD of 7 mK, 10 ms integration time and typical operability > 99.8 %. From modelling and studies of the temperature dependence of the FPA performance, further increase of the operating temperature up 130 K is predicted for the 5.3μm design.
