Abstract:

Recent advancements in HgCdTe heteroepitaxy on silicon substrates are described. The aim of these efforts is the extension of the spectral response of HgCdTe-on-Si-based devices into the long wavelength infrared region. The achievement of this aim will enable low-cost, third generation infrared focal plane arrays.
