Paper Abstract

The discovery of a passivant for HgCdTe which might be suitable for the production of hardened mosaic focal plane arrays is a topic of general interest. The native oxide passivation of HgCdTe has been found to be susceptible to radiation effects. The purpose of this paper is to describe a new passivant for HgCdTe, one containing neither native nor non-native oxides. The performance of MWIR and LWIR photodiodes so passivated will be presented. In addition, ion-milled diode data will be presented and shown to be comparable to that of unmilled diodes.
