Complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS)-hybrid arrays have become competitive optical detectors for use in ground- and space-based astronomy. Interpixel capacitance (IPC) is one source of error that appears in most CMOS arrays. In this paper, we use a single-pixel-reset method to model IPC. We combine this IPC model with a model for charge diffusion to estimate the total crosstalk on H4RG-10 arrays. Finally, we compare our model results to 55Fe data obtained using an astrometric camera built to test the H4RG-10 B0 generation detectors.
