CdTe photodetectors capable of operating continuously at 750F were developed. The detectors at temperature could detect a photosignal of 100 micron Wsquare centimeters with a signal to noise ratio of fourteen to one with an output impedance of 500ohms. The detectors had peak sensitivity near 0.9micron and were quite insensitive above 1.2 micron, making them ideal for operation as aircraft engine fire detectors. Author
