Recent Developments in Photoconductive IR Arrays
Brian Elias, director of engineering at Cal Sensors, takes a
closer look at the application of several established technologies that have been applied to make lead sulphide (PbS) and
lead selenide (PbSe) arrays compatible with modern infrared
array applications. In this article, an implementation will be
shown that takes advantage of these techniques to produce a
