SPRITE; IR DETECTORS; CHARGE TRANSPORT; MTF; Optics
Carrier transport in signal-processing-in-the-element (SPRITE) detectors is an important phenomenon because it determines properties such as the responsivity and the modulation transfer function (MTF). The previous literature has presented approximate solutions to the transport problem that neglect boundary effects, which have long been thought to play a major role in SPRITE behavior. We present a new solution to the problem through the use of modal analysis. This method intrinsically includes boundary conditions and thus is more complete than the previous analysis. Furthermore we use this solution to derive expressions for the MTF. The effects of the boundary conditions on the MTF are studied to determine their optimum values.
