Fiscal Year: 2006
Title: Affordable Large-Format Mid-Infrared (IR) Imagers Using Large Metamorphic InSb-on-GaAs Wafers
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA8718-06-C-0052
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

We propose epitaxial InSb grown on large metamorphic GaAs substrates as a platform to enable large affordable mid-infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs). In Phase 1, we will design and grow a number of metamorphic buffers to accommodate the lattice mismatch between InSb and GaAs. Their quality will be evaluated in actual focal plane arrays that we will fabricate and test. Phase 1 will experimentally test the feasibility of this approach. If successful, Phase 2 will quantify manufacturability and yield issues of InSb FPAs on 6-inch GaAs substrates.
