25 August 2005 Total ionizing dose response of the Hawaii-2RG focal plane array
Author Affiliations +
As spacecraft missions increase in scope and duration, the need for established focal planes to fulfill these mission requirements increases proportionally. The visible hybrid HAWAII-2RG (HgCdTe Astronomy Wide Area Infrared Imager with 2k x 2k resolution, reference and guide mode) has a venerable terrestrial-based telescope history. These focal planes are considered candidates for space applications. As a candidate focal plane, the responses of the HAWAII-2RG under nominal operating conditions in an ionizing debris gamma environment are discussed. Measurements in dark current frame captures and voltage bias currents are delineated.
