Cooled infrared imaging is in many ways a mature technology, with its architectures well-defined and its past and present applications well-understood. Nevertheless, opportunities abound for:
Perhaps no other variable is as important to this equation as the detector material itself. Today, many users, industry leaders and scientists agree that the best semiconductor material for capitalizing on these opportunities is Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT), or HgCdTe.
