Paper Abstract

For extrinsic silicon detector arrays, performance is optimized by a careful compromise among several material characteristics affected by growth and processing parameters. In this paper we discuss the role of the major and minor dopant concentrations on spectral response, spatial uniformity of responsivity, impact ionization and impurity band conduction. The impact of these on detector operational constraints is a key element in focal plane detector array design.
