Abstract:

Improvements were made in the junction technology required for sensitive, high speed mercury cadmium telluride Hg,CdTe, photodiode detectors that operate at 77K. Effort was directed toward the investigation of surface etches, initiation of a planar junction technology, bulk material study, and detailed characterization of fabricated devices. The results of these investigations have been important contributions to the development of Hg,CdTe photodiode detectors, optimized for 10.6-micron radiation. Author
