  1. MBE CdTe on Compliant Substrates for High Performance IRFPAs

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA11T002

    Current state-of-the-art infrared focal plane arrays are based on HgCdTe grown on bulk CdZnTe substrates. The use of Si-based substrates would eliminate a number of drawbacks related to the HgCdTe/CdZnTe system and permit larger formats. We have developed growth protocols that produce material with good crystal quality for such a highly mismatched heteroepitaxial system. Double crystal rocking c ...

  2. Defect Passivation for High Performance HgCdTe on Si

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA11T002

    Hydrogen isotopes have been shown to reduce the electrical effects of various semiconductor defects. Specifically, monoatomic hydrogen and deuterium passivate the electrical activity of defects such as dislocations in long-wavelength HgCdTe grown on Si. We propose a novel method of controlling the intake of hydrogen in HgCdTe IRFPAs by using the H2/He plasma afterglow formed by flowing plasma-gene ...

  3. Defect Reductions on Si Substrates for HgCdTe MBE Growth

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA11T002

    Current state-of-the-art infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) are based on HgCdTe material epitaxially grown on bulk CdZnTe substrates. The size of the IRFPAs is limited by the size of the available CdZnTe substrates and the thermal mismatch between CdZnTe and the Si readout circuit, which misaligns the photodiode array with respect to the circuit during heating and cooling cycles. Having HgCdTe ...

  5. Deployed First Responder Course of Action (COA) Evaluation and After Action Review (AAR) Tools

    SBC: Cognitive Performance Group of Florida            Topic: OSD10H07

    Humanitarian organizations hold the same objectives: to save lives, alleviate suffering, and maintain human dignity. Humanitarian organizations large and small respond in numbers to large-scale disasters such as Hurricane Katrina or the devastation in Ha

  6. Serious Game for Continuity of Care Training

    SBC: Vcom3D, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H08

    For this Phase I SBIR, Vcom3D will design a Web-based medical game for the development of the cognitive skills required to provide highest quality of care from far-forward locations through evacuation to level 1 trauma facilities. The training will empha

  7. Enhancing the User"s Experience in an Amputee Virtual Environment Support Space

    SBC: SIMWRIGHT, INC.            Topic: OSD11H04

    One of the most significant issues facing amputees leaving rehabilitation units is the loss of connectivity with peers and caregivers. The new Amputee Virtual Environment Support Space (AVESS) being constructed within Second Life is a great resource enabling social networking between returning amputees and caregivers. Emerging haptic devices and sensors could greatly increase the immersive nature ...

  8. Feasibility of Long Wavelength Infrared Focal Plane Arrays Based on Type-II Superlattice Minority Electron Unipolar Architecture

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA10009

    Recent development of Antimonide-based Type-II superlattice infrared detectors has resulted in significant breakthroughs in terms of device performance as well as FPA imaging quality. Improvement in material quality and processing technique, as well as evolutionary modifications in device architecture have demonstrated the advantages of the material system over alternatives, and proven it as a via ...

  9. Ultrasensitive and Compact Superluminal Ring Laser Accelerometer for Inertial Navigation

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA10011

    For many applications, there is a need for developing inertial measurement units (IMU), employing gyroscopes and accelerometers, with better accuracy and/or smaller volume and weight. Currently, in partnership with others, we at Digital Optics Technologies (DOT) have been developing a superluminal ring laser gyroscope (SRLG) that can improve the accuracy of rotation sensing by nearly five orders ...

  10. Development of Type-II Superlattices for Two-Color Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA10012

    High performance single-band focal plane arrays (FPAs) are sometimes unable to discriminate a target from its background when they present similar infrared radiation at a given wavelength which may occur even if the temperatures of the objects are different. Two-Color FPAs offer an additional wavelength that allows easy identification in such cases. Large-format dual-band FPAs are highly needed f ...
