29 September 2005 Analysis of performances of quantum cascade detectors
Author Affiliations +
Some parameters of integration of a Quantum Cascade Detector (QCD) in an infrared imaging system are studied. Performances of QCD are first presented : absorption and responsivity spectra, peak responsivity (around 44 mA/W), resistivity at zero bias and detectivity. Quantum efficiency and photoconduction gain are deduced from these results. Finally the consequences of an integration of such a detector in a readout circuit are studied in terms of saturation of an external capacitor.
