Paper Abstract

ASELSAN A.S., the largest defense company in Turkey, develops high performance electro-optical systems for land, air and naval applications. Research activities on developing Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) detectors are on-going for MW and LW infrared bands. In this paper, recent results on Cadmium Zinc Telluride substrate growth, long wavelength (LW) Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) detector fabrication and readout integrated circuit design are summarized. LW MCT focal plane arrays with a format of 320×256/30 μm are fabricated. Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference (NETD) of these focal plane arrays (FPA) are 45.7 mK and 59.9 mK (f/1.5, 77K) while the operabilites are 98.14% and 99.28%, respectively.
