Paper Abstract

Sofradir, the European company totally dedicated to second and third generation of IR detectors has focused its activities on development and production based on MCT material. As a matter of fact, Sofradir is one of the sole companies in the world able to master the MCT technology for SW, MW, and LW and then to produce this type of arrays in good conditions allowing affordable prices. This activity covers TDI long linear arrays and staring arrays. Performances of TDI arrays like the 480 X 6 or staring arrays like the 320 X 240/ 256 X 256 will be presented. Then the most advanced activities in France in the field of IR detectors will be presented. This will cover the new MCT 640 X 480 but also the approach of QWIPs and microbolometers.
