Abstract:

Agiltron will develop the Silicon Nanowire Integrated Multispectral Sensor, a low-SWAP silicon-based sensor with unprecedented capability for day/night imaging along with extended spectral response deep into the SWIR for laser marker detection. The Silicon Nanowire Sensor contains an array of fully-CMOS compatible silicon nanowire phototransistors whose unique nanoscale architecture creates colossal internal gain at biases on the order of one volt, a level of performance that is unprecedented in a solid state imager. When monolithically integrated with CMOS readout integrated circuitry (ROIC) at the pixel level, a silicon-based solid state imager with uncooled operation and performance equivalent to InGaAs will be realized for the first time.
