Infrared Detectors provides comprehensive coverage of this important aspect of infrared technology, including details of recent research efforts directed toward improving the performance of single element devices, large electronically scanned arrays, and higher operating temperatures. Discussions include HgCdTe detectors, Schottky barrier photoemissive devices, silicon, germanium, and InSb detectors, and quantum well infrared photodetectors. The author also considers IR thermal detectors, including details on phyroelectric detectors, micromachined silicon bolometers, and high Tc superconductor detectors.HgZnTe AND HgMnTe DETECTORS At present Hgi vCdvTe (HgCdTe) is the most important intrinsic semiconductor alloy system ... However, the new Hg- based narrow gap semiconductors are likely gradually to replace HgCdTe, especially inanbsp;...
