Novel Transparent Conductors for EMI Shielding of Sensor Windows
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
This project will investigate a novel family of infrared transparent thin film materials having high electrical conductivity for electromagnetic interference shielding of IR sensor windows. High purity powders of bulk materials will be synthesized.Sputtering targets from the powders will be fabricated via pressureless sintering. Thin films will be deposited by rf magnetron sputtering. Electrical conductivity, optical IR transmission and microwave attenuation of the films will be determined. Themicrostructure-property relationship will be established. Potential commercial applications include architectural shielding in industrial environments, view windows on magnetic resonance imaging systems, windows in embassy buildings and other governmentinstallations, view IR windows on all types of electronic equipment and instrumentation, and transparent electrodes in display devices.
