Abstract

In this study, crosstalk suppressing design of dielectric GaAs microlenses integrated on a traditional HgCdTe infrared focal plane array is presented, by exploiting the finite difference time domain technique. Responsive photocurrent of the objective pixel and crosstalk between adjacent detectors have been numerically simulated, using commercial TCAD software Apsys, for a mid-wavelength planar array with a pitch of 20\(\upmu \)m. By properly adjusting both the microlens radius and the absorber thickness, crosstalk can be notably suppressed to less than 1 % while the photoresponse is maintained or even enhanced.
