Jet Propulsion Laboratory is actively developing the III-V based infrared detector and focal plane arrays (FPAs) for remote sensing and imaging applications. Currently, we are working on Superlattice detectors, multi-band Quantum Well Infrared Photodetectors (QWIPs), and Quantum Dot Infrared Photodetector (QDIPs) technologies suitable for high pixel-pixel uniformity and high pixel operability large area imaging arrays. In this paper, we will discuss the demonstration of long-wavelength 1Kx1K QDIP FPA, 1Kx1K QWIP FPA, the first demonstration of the megapixelsimultaneously- readable and pixel-co-registered dual-band QWIP FPA, and demonstration of the first mid-wave and long-wave 1Kx1K superlattice FPA. In addition, we will discuss the advantages of III-V material system in the context of large format infrared FPAs.
