Title: Passivation of InAs/GaInSb Superlattices for Improved VLWIR Focal Plane Performance
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: HQ0006-06-C-7343
Award Amount: $500,000.00
 

Abstract:

This Phase II program proposes a unique passivation process for infrared focal plane arrays. It entails the re-growth of isolating structures on the processed array that will passivate surface traps, leading to dramatically reduced surface-related transient effects and improved device performance. We shall team up with MDA designated partners to adapt the passivation process to focal plane arrays fabricated from InAs/GaInSb superlattices. This material system is capable of infrared detection from 2 to > 30 micron and the arrays are of great interest to the DoD for various applications including, in particular, optical detection of space borne objects.
