Abstract
A PASSIVELY-COOLED DETECTOR ARRAY TECHNOLOGY IN THE MID WAVELENGTH INFRARED (MWIR) REGION IS BEING SOUGHT FOR SPACEBORNE SURVEILLANCE APPLICATIONS. WE HAVE PROPOSED TO USE THE MOLECULAR BEAM EPITAXY (MBE) TECHNOLOGY TO FABRICATE HIGH-QUALITY INSB MATERIAL AND HIGHDETECTIVITY DETECTOR ARRAYS. THE RESULTANT ARRAYS, WHEN OPERATED AT TEMPERATURES ACHIEVABLE WITH PASSIVE COOLING WILL HAVE A DETECTIVITY COMPARABLE TO CURRENT DETECTOR OPERATING AT 100K. THE MILESTONES FOR PHASE I OF A THREE-PHASE PROGRAM ANALYSIS, DESIGN AND DEFINITION OF THE MBE PROCESSES TO ESTABLISH HIGH-QUALITY INSB EPITAXIAL LAYERS ON SUITABLE MWIR TRANSPARENT SUBSTRATES SUITABLE FOR FLIP-CHIP HYBRID ARRAY FABRICATION.
