Abstract:

Experimental and theoretical effects of displacement damage to infrared detectors from high energy neutrons was studied. Material parameters which can be radiation dependent and which affect detector performance were identified. Theoretical studies are presented for both photoconductive and photovoltaic detectors. Experimental results for lead sulfide detectors are presented. Degradation of detector performance has been observed for neutron fluences greater than 10 to the 12th power neutrons sq cm.
