Paper Abstract

Near infrared detector technology in the 10-30 μm band have been developed for use in liquid helium cooled telescopes both for celestial background measurements and for target identifications. Focal plane arrays using multidetector elements with charge coupled devices are being developed for infrared imagery. Research and development technology are now in progress for long wavelength (30 μm - 125 μm) detectors to be used in cryogenically cooled infrared telescopes to be used in satellite infrared experiments.
