Abstract:

New technology was utilized to design and fabricate a self-filtering infrared detector SFD optimized for a specific target signature. The SFD was prepared from vacuum deposited, composition-tuned epitaxial films of the semiconductor alloy, PbSxSe1-x. A filter and detector layer were both grown on opposite sides of a BaF2 substrate. The detector element was a p-n junction formed by depositing a Pb contact onto a p-type detector layer surrounded by a Au ohmic contact.
