The production processes for IR-detectors of the 2. generation are matured. The electro optical performance parameters have reached a very high level, and constant performance values of the detectors can be expected over a long period of time. For state of the art 480 x 6 linear detectors, sensitive in the 7 – 12μm wavelength range, AIM has demonstrated long term stability of gain correction coefficients. Driven by the development of the process parameters required...
