Abstract:

The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) is seeking solutions in the development of zero power or near zero power sensor technologies to detect tamper events in sensitive systems and electronics. Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG) has demonstrated feasibility, under a previous project, of a photo-responsive, variable-conductivity material that utilizes a unique mechanism separate from classic photoconductive and photoresistive materials. This material is capable of rapid, reversible changes in resistivity dependant upon light exposure conditions, and with further development, will maintain the change in resistivity in a stable state in the absence of further irradiation. CRG is proposing the development of this material to be integrated as a zero-power sensor for detecting incident light in closed systems.
