Third generation thermal imagers with dual/multi-band operation capability are the prominent focus of the current research in the field of infrared detection. Dual band quantum-well infrared photodetector (QWIP) focal plane arrays (FPAs) based on various detection and fabrication approaches have been reported. One of these approaches is the three-contact design allowing simultaneous integration of the signals in both bands. However, this approach requires three In bumps on each pixel leading to a complicated fabrication process and lower fill factor.
