Infrared Detectors

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Detectors for infrared instruments are important for Earth, planetary, lunar and astrophysics remote sensing. This project will evaluate several materials for use as infrared detectors.  Once the optimal materials are selected, we will fabricate and test new detectors.

The end goal of this project is to develop proof-of-concept infrared detectors which can be integrated in future infrared instruments engaged in remote sensing.  We plan to evaluate several materials for their compatibility and performance.
