Paper Abstract

We present our latest results from a novel nano-injector-base photon detector. Previously, we have demonstrated the excellent noise performance and large linear gain of single-element devices at room temperature. Here we demonstrate the first focal plane array (FPA) made from this unique device, and show that they hold their high gain and low noise performance at a good array uniformity. The high internal gain produces significantly better images at high frame rates, or at low light level conditions.
