Contract: NNG06LA43C
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

This Phase I project is to investigate the feasibility for achieving EUV detectors for space applications by exploiting the ultrahigh bandgap semiconductor - AlN. We plan to devise methods to improve the AlN epitaxial material quality and device structures for EUV detectors. Specifically, we will study the properties of Si and Mg doped AlN epilayers and investigate n- and p-type doping issues in AlN and hence the feasibility for achieving high performance EUV detectors; improve the AlN material quality by exploiting novel template/substrates and growth schemes to reduce the dislocation and native defect density. Use knowledge gained from these investigations to provide new understanding of the III-nitride system and to improve EUV detector structural design. It is intended that EUV detector wafers will also be delivered to NASA scientists for the fabrication of detector arrays. Improved performances of AlN based EUV detectors over conventional existing technologies are expected.
