Abstract : Work has been done on a study of recombination radiation in gallium arsenide and other intermetallic compounds. Techniques for the fabrication of gallium arsenide injection diodes, including the cleaving method for shaping the resonant cavity, have been developed. Several hundred diodes have been made and tested for both coherent and incoherent operation. Results for the coherent diodes are comparable to those obtained by other investigators. Firm evidence for coherent operation has not been obtained. Work has also been done on experimental study of the performance capability of infrared camera tubes in accordance with new standards being developed by the IRIS Specialty Group on Image Sensing Devices.
