This paper presents an interview with Dr Paul W. Kruse (1927–2012) on the early history of the semiconductor alloy mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe or Hg1−xCdxTe) at the Honeywell Corporate Research Center near Minneapolis, Minnesota. Conducted on October 22, 1980, the interview covers two main areas. One area is the story of how the HgCdTe research effort came about at the Honeywell Research Center in the early 1960s, what technical choices were made and when, and what technical challenges… Expand

Challenges in multiphysics modeling of dual-band HgCdTe infrared detectors.
We present three-dimensional simulations of HgCdTe-based focal plane arrays (FPAs) with two-color and dual-band sequential infrared pixels having realistic truncated-pyramid shape, taking intoExpand
Analysis of dark current generated by long-wave infrared HgCdTe photodiodes with different implantation shapes
Abstract Resistance-voltage curves of B+-implanted n-on-p Hg1-xCdxTe long-wavelength infrared photodiodes with different implantation unit shapes were measured for temperatures in the 20–140 K range.Expand
