Paper Abstract

In recent years silicide Schottky-barrier focal plane technology has received great interest because it is the most promising technology for high density infrared image sensors. However, improvement in not only the detector performance but also the readout architecture is indispensable for realizing high density infrared image sensors. This paper presents the advances in silicide Schottky-barrier focal plane technology and the design considerations for high resolution infrared image sensors with video quality. A 512x512-element platinum silicide Schottky-barrier infrared image sensor with a novel readout architecture is also described.
