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 12 mm x 12 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 cmcps12watt. Detailed test data on these samples are included in the appendix to this report. Author
