DIAMOND-BASED THERMAL SENSORY ELEMENT
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
There is a market for a room temperature infrared detector as well as for a detection system which is radiation resistant and works at high temperatures and in reactive environments. Current infrared imaging technologies are too expensive and too bulky for these applications. We are proposing to develop an infrared and thermal detector based on a novel kind of light converter. The concept incorporates a diamond-based thermal sensing element controlling a solid-state light emitter. The principle of the proposed device will be demonstrated by the end of the phase I effort.
