Paper Abstract

The development of HgCdTe-alloy and -superlattice array detectors for astronomical applications in the x = 50-150 m band is discussed in light of NASA mission requirements over the next decade. High background observations on the SOFIA aircraft and planetary probes are identified for initial applications.
