Abstract
The mercury–cadmium–tellurium (MCT) sensors are considered the ideal infrared detectors to equip the focal plane arrays (FPAs) of astronomical scientific missions. To tackle Europe to be self-sufficient on this technology and promote to reach the same maturity level attained by the current MCT sensors market leaders, the Astronomy European Infrared Detector (ASTEROID) project aims to provide Europe with the capability to manufacture high-performance infrared FPAs devoted to scientific use, s...
