The Impact of Array Detectors on High Resolution Infrared Spectroscopy

  • Stephen T. Ridgway (a1) and Kenneth H. Hinkle (a1)

Abstract

Infrared detector arrays implemented for astronomical use during the past few years achieve performance gains which have profound implications for infrared spectroscopy. Arrays are now available with ∼ few × 103 pixels, each of which is ∼ 102 times more sensitive than previous single element detectors. Depending on the spectral regime, it is now possible to construct infrared spectrometers with limiting sensitivities 10–500 times fainter than in current use.
