Insights on Amorphous Silicon Nip and MIS 3D Position Sensitive Detectors

Abstract:

Article Preview

This work aims to report results of the spatial and frequency optical detection limits of integrated arrays of 32 one-dimensional amorphous silicon thin film position sensitive detectors with nip or MIS structure, under continuous and pulsed laser operation conditions. The arrays occupy a total active area of 45 mm2 and have a plane image resolution better than 15 m with a cut-off frequency of about 6.8 kHz. The non-linearity of the array components varies with the frequency, being about 1.6% for 200 Hz and about 4% for the cut-off frequency (6.8 kHz).
