Paper Abstract

Photoconductive detectors in the 10-1000μm range have been developed and flown in rocket borne liquid helium cooled telescopes for sky survey and auroral emission studies. Measurements under background limited conditions have been made in the spectral range of 60-300μm using the 30cm telescope aboard the NASA Lear Jet. We present the results of the detector sensitivities used under these two environments.
