A Novel Transition Edge High Tc Superconducting Bolometer Using CCVD thin films
For the proposed Phase I project, MicroCoating Technologies, Inc. (MCT) will explore the feasibility of fabricating a two-layer thin film composite on single crystal substrates that is composed of an epitaxial superconducting BKBO-class thin film of superior, sharp temperature transition edge and a ?super-?doped epitaxial thin film of the same material compound with large absorption of far-infrared wavelengths. This enabling materials platform is made possible by MCT's proprietary non-vacuum Combustion Chemical Vapor Deposition (CCVD) technology, which permits the deposition of complex epitaxial thin films and variation in material composition. Thus absorber and detector are made in the same process sequentially for the high Tc transition edge bolometers.
