Abstract
A high pixel density, large format, near infrared (NIR) focal plane array, capable of response times ranging from 10 ns to DC, will be designed and demonstrated effective in reducing the uncertainty in radiometric field measurements of high-energy laser spot spatial distributions. The germanium photodetectors have excellent NIR sensitivity and are a well established NIR calibration source. The innovation lies in fabricating a large format focal plane array that is fully compatible with high volume, commercial CMOS processes and that can scale with coming generations of deep-submicron technologies. Unlike III-V based approaches, the cost-effective detector arrays have high current handling capability, are readily scaled to 2048 by 2048 resolution, and provide all of the versatility and performance advantages of visible CMOS active pixel focal plane arrays.
