We demonstrated a 256 times 256 voltage-tunable two- color corrugated quantum-well infrared-photodetector focal plane array. The detector operation is based on photocurrent asymmetry in a double-superlattice quantum well structure. By using a broadband corrugated light coupling scheme, we obtained a quantum efficiency of 24% in the mid-wave (MW) band and 26% in the long-wave (LW) band without AR coating. Operating at 50 K, the measured noise equivalent temperature difference is 27 mK at 33-ms integration time for the MW and 90 mK at 2 ms for the LW with f/2.44 optics. The NETD operability values are 98.4% and 95.9%, respectively.
