This second edition is a carefully organized comprehensive introduction to infrared and visible detectors, and how to use and test them. This book strives to make the concepts clear and easy to understand, without oversimplification, covering single element detectors, very small Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs), and large FPAs used for imaging. This book includes description of the detector mechanisms to help users select appropriate detector types and use them properly, including chapters on radiometric calculations, selection and use of Readout Integrated Circuits (ROIC) for FPAs, and the electronics needed to operate these devices. An extensive Appendix includes frequently sought-after information on related subjects: uncertainty, optics, cryogenics, and vacuum.
