Low-cost, light-weight, low-power, large-format, room-temperature, mid-wave infrared (MWIR) detectors are needed for reduced-scale aircraft. An opportunity, suggested by direct-read X-radiography systems, is the use of thin film transistor (TFT) array as read-out integrated circuit (ROIC) for low-cost sensors deposited directly and unpatterned onto this ROIC. TFTs have already been thoroughly optimized for power, weight, large-format, and cost by the flat-panel-display industry. We present experimental investigation of aqueous-spray-deposited, mid-wave-IR, metal-chalcogenide heterojunction CdS/PbS photodiodes for this application. Measured responsivity, detectivity D*, and photoresponse spectra are reported.
