Four ALADDIN Type II 1024x1024 InSb arrays have been tested in the NOAO Infrared Detector Lab for use in the Gemini infrared instruments: the Gemini Near-Infrared Spectrometer (GNIRS) and the Near Infrared Imager (NIRI). Santa Barbara Research Center (SBRC) has been able to successfully deliver science devices, the best of which will be selected for use at Mauna Kea and Cerro Pachon. These results are reported to show the progress in the development of these arrays.
