Paper Abstract

The HAWAII-2 is an IR 20482 focal plane array (FPA) that is being developed for next-generation IR astronomy. It will supplant our HAWAII 10242 as the largest high- performance imaging array available for IR astronomy. As with our prior IR sensor, the flip-chip hybrid will consist of a low-capacitance HgCdTe detector array mated to a low- noise CMOS silicon multiplexer via indium interconnects. In order to accommodate reasonable telescope optics and fabrication of the large sophisticated readout using world- class submicron CMOS, the FPA has 18 micrometers pixel pitch. We anticipate > 5 percent yield of defect-free multiplexers using 0.8 micrometers CMOS. The HgCdTe detector arrays will be fabricated on large wafers including sapphire and silicon. Though the first FPAs will have 2.5 micrometers cut-off, the readout will be able to support longer wavelengths. Also reported are the latest 1024 X 1024 FPA results with 2.5 micrometers HgCdTe detectors.
