Abstract

The ALADDIN 1024 × 1024 InSb array is now a fact rather than a concept, and the time has come to show test results. In this paper we present lab test data but we have also taken it to the telescope. The development program was a success and the array has met the design goals of the program. The few remaining problems involve hybridization and are expected to be solved soon. The ALADDIN program is a joint collaboration between the National Optical Astronomy Observatories (NOAO) and the U. S. Naval Observatory (USNO) with Santa Barbara Research Center (SBRC).
