Abstract.  We present an overview of III-V semiconductor-based infrared detector and focal plane array development at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in recent years. Topics discussed include: (1) the development of long-wavelength quantum well infrared photodetector for imaging spectrometer applications, (2) the concept and realization of the submonolayer quantum dot infrared photodetector (SML-QDIP) as an alternative to the standard QDIP-based on Stranski-Krastanov (SK) quantum dots, (3) the mid-wavelength infrared quantum dot barrier infrared detector with extended cutoff wavelength, and (4) high-performance type-II superlattice long-wavelength infrared detectors based on the complementary barrier infrared detector architecture.
