Abstract:Uncooled infrared (IR) photodetectors for telecommunications, optical processor interconnects, and focal plane arrays are advantageously integrated into systems that are silicon based through advanced thin-film technologies. This paper reviews challenges of materials, microstructures, interfaces, and reactions of thin-film materials and technologies posed by such applications.
