Paper Abstract

A scanning electron microscope (SEM) has been modified and conjoined with a cryogenic chamber to enable application of a focused electron beam to probe long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) detectors in a low IR photon environment. A beam blanker installed in the SEM allows the temporal as well as the spatial response of a detector to be measured. The apparatus has been applied to study the effects of ionizing radiation in Si impurity band detectors and HgCdTe detectors. Examples of these applications are presented.
