Teledyne’s high performance infrared detectors for Space missions

Paper Abstract

Teledyne is one of the world’s leaders in the provision of infrared sensors for Earth science, planetary science, and astronomy. This paper presents Teledyne’s focal plane array technologies that provide high performance for space missions, with sections on substrate-removed HgCdTe (that provides simultaneous visible / IR detection) and fully depleted HgCdTe (that enables detectors to be operated at significantly increased temperatures). We give examples of the image sensors provided for Euclid, WFIRST, AVIRIS-NG, ECOSTRESS, and NEOCam.
