In support of the design and building of the next generation imaging detectors for near- and mid-IR wavelength telescopes to enable new astronomical discoveries about the origin, evolution, and future of the Universe. The detectors will have zero read noise capability, which effectively quadruples the collecting power of large telescopes such as the Thirty Meter Telescope. In addition, the zero read noise technique can be adapted to, and advance, a wide range of image detection applications including medicine, oceanography, and meteorology.
