Abstract

A theoretical equation is given for the sensitivities or signal-to-noise ratios of infrared photodetectors as functions of area and sensitive time and long-wavelength cutoff λ0, assuming the materials approach within comparable factors of the fundamental limits set by radiation noise from their surroundings at a given temperature.
