Paper Abstract

SELEX Galileo are developing 12μm arrays focal plane arrays fabricated from Metal Organic Vapour Phase Epitaxy (MOVPE) MCT grown on GaAs substrate arrays for use with megapixel array programmes. We report on a 256 x 256 format 12μm pixel pitch test array and provide an update on our HD1920 x 1080p format 12μm pixel pitch MW program. An overview of some of the technical challenges is given along with a summary of the low power device showing the 3-side buttable design approach, ROIC floor plan, preliminary results and the formation of larger mosaic arrays.
