Abstract
A 2K x 2K 10 µm cutoff HgCdTe array for background-limited space astronomy has been developed by Teledyne Imaging Sensors to specifications set by JPL, and demonstrated by University of Rochester at a focal plane temperature of 40K for the proposed JPL Near-Earth Object Camera (NEOCam) survey mission under the NASA Planetary Defense Coordination Office. We describe the detector performance for the first large format monolithic HgCdTe detector array tested, including the dark current, well depth, dark current vs. temperature, quantum efficiency, latent image performance, and read noise.
