Abstract : A Schottky barrier diode formed of iridium-silicon material having a frequency response encompassing the 3.0 to 5.0 micrometer infrared band. The bandwidth, uniformity of response and silicon base material of such diodes renders them ideally suited for use in large scale focal plane arrays associated with infrared cameras. (Author)
