Title: In-situ Stress and Temperature Optical Monitoring for low-cost heteroepitaxial substrates for HgCdTe infrared detectors.
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W909MY-10-C-0034
Award Amount: $69,571.00
 

Abstract:

The feasibility of an in-situ, real-time, non-contact system for optically monitoring temperature in the range 25-800C on Si, GaAs, and CdTe-buffered Si/GaAs substrates will be demonstrated. Real-time measurement of thin-film stress and surface reflectivity during deposition on these substrates, including samples provided by NVESD, will also be developed. Temperature measurement will be performed via band-edge thermometry and blackbody radiation analysis, while stress and reflectivity measurement will be made using an etalon-based multiple laser array approach. Data acquisition will be home-pulse triggered, with provisions made for the non-integer shaft-to-stage rotation ratio of V80H MBE reactors.
