Abstract : This report discusses work performed during the fourth quarterly period of a PEM for producing p-type, gold-doped germanium infrared detectors, type IR400. Work was concentrated on manufacturing and testing of preproduction samples; compilation of the Inspection and Quality Control Plan; and preparation of processing specifications with device, jig, and fixture drawings. About midway in the period, negotiations were completed for a change of scope of the contract to reduce the sensitive area to 1/2 mm x 1/2 mm. The change was authorized by Modification No. 2, effective 19 November 1963. Five detectors, with barium fluoride windows and sensitive area of 2 mm x 2 mm, were prepared as preproduction samples before the program change referred to above. All but one had a D meeting the original specification of 3 x 10 to the 9th power cm(cps)1/2/watt. Detailed test data on these samples are included in the appendix to this report. (Author)
