As part of a program to extend the wavelength response of infrared array technology beyond the cutoff of extrinsic silicon photoconductivity, we have calculated the optimum parameters for a front-illuminated two dimensional array of Ge:Be detectors. Detector arrays to this prescription have been produced by indium bump bonding onto sapphire fanouts. We report a preliminary performance evaluation of these arrays.
