  1. Spectral crosstalk reduction in dual-band long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) photodetectors based on antimonide-based type-II superlattices

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: MDA15T004

    Antimonide-based Type-II superlattices (T2SL) are capable of delivering highly capable infrared detection capability. Improvement in material quality and processing techniques, as well as evolutionary modifications in device architecture have demonstrated the advantages of the material system over alternatives, and proven it as a viable candidate for the next generation infrared detection. Yet, th ...

  2. Top Coatings and Enhanced Cathodic Protection Capability for High-Value BMDS MDA Assets

    SBC: AMERICAN ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES COMPANY            Topic: MDA13T010

    American Energy Technologies Co. (a woman-owned small business concern of Arlington Heights, IL), will be joined by subcontractors University of Massachusetts (Boston, MA) and Advanced Technology Laboratories of Lockheed Martin Corp. (St. Paul, MN) in order to develop two anti-corrosion technologies with the goal to deploy them in a variety of equipment. The first technology is a top coating whic ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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. 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 ...

  7. Passivation of Type II Superlattices for IR Sensors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA06T011

    Cheaper and higher performance infrared sensors are needed for next generation ballistic missile defense programs. Type II InAs/GaSb superlattices represent the most promising material system capable of delivering a more manufacturable and affordable focal plane array technology than the current technology, while at the same time exhibiting similar or better performance. At present, one of the m ...
