ALA News: Sofradir designs its first supersize 4MP SWIR sensor with 15um pitch for ESA space observation programs. The ALFA 2Kx2K (Astronomy Large Focal Array) 15┬Ám pitch SWIR detector is said to provide the highest levels of performance in QE, dark current and noise in order to optimize IR observations for astrophysicists. The SWIR detector is based on a compound semiconductor material, mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe)and includes a readout circuit (ROIC) with a source follower per detector (SFD) at the input stage.
