Paper Abstract

A monolithic Midwave InfraRed (MIR) sensitive array based on PbTe photoconductive sensors and a silicon CCD current integrator and multiplexer is manufactured and evaluated.. The dark current of the devices can be kept sufficiently low to allow for integration times of 4.4 msec. The responsivity and the detectivity D* of the device are quite high and can be compared to other types of IR sensors for the same wavelength range. The responsivity uniformity of the PbTeCCD is better than 10 %.
