Passive IR Sensors Based on High Quantum Efficiency P-on-N Type-II Strained Layer Superlattices
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
We propose to develop a high-performance longwave infrared focal plane array (FPA) based on Type-II InAs/(In)GaSb strained-layer-superlattice (SLS) technology and deliver it packaged in a portable handheld CAMERA. In Phase 1, a matrix of recipes was designed and grown, several wafers were processed, arrays were fabricated and characterized, and material and process issues identified. In Phase 2, we will optimize material design, growth, and processing with the goal of producing FPAs with high quantum efficiency and pixel operability. Both, a camera and a separate FPA, will be delivered to the MDA for evaluation in programs such as THAAD and MKV.
