Paper Abstract

The Characterization of Advanced Low-Background Mosaics (CALM) test chamber is a low-background, high-vacuum cryogenically cooled test facility used to test and evaluate long wave infrared mosaics focal planes. CALM is capable of generating broad band and narrow band sources, spot scan and flooded testing, spectral characterizations, and provides for quick turn around of FPA's. This paper describes the CALM chamber and associated support equipment and discusses representative test data from mosaic detector arrays.
