Research Institution

Freedom Photonics and its team partners propose to develop in this program a novel Focal Plane Array (FPA) based on Germanium Silicon Tin (GeSiSn) on Silicon technology, capable of detecting wavelengths in the Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) range, up to 2200 nm. The FPAs will be developed in PIN photodiode and Avalanche Photodiode (APD) configuratios. These FPAs have the potential of providing low cost, large size and high sensitivity sensors, thus offering a practical solution to the US military forces widespread need for next generation SWIR imaging systems. These FPAs also have commercial applications, supporting US industry, health care and agriculture, among many other areas.
