  1. Multi-color VLWIR Focal Plane Array

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA03039

    We propose the development of high quality HgCdTe-based materials and high performance two-color detector arrays operating in the very-long wavelength infrared (VLWIR) spectral region. The fabrication of large format, high sensitivity focal plane arrays sensing in the VLWIR is highly desirable for various applications complementing Missile Defense, Army, Navy, and Air Force capabilities. They will ...

  2. Strained Layer Superlattice Using HgTe for VLWIR Detection

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA04082

    High-performance detectors sensing in the long wavelength and very long wavelength infrared spectral ranges are desirable for various applications supporting Air Force and Missile Defense capabilities. Limited types of detectors and arrays are currently available for the detection of infrared radiation with wavelengths longer than 15 microns, and most are based on low quantum efficiency extrinsic ...

  3. Long and Very Long Wavelenght Non-equilibrium Superlattice Infrared Detectors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA04038

    We propose a new generation of non-equilibrium, high efficiency long and very long wavelength infrared (8 microns and longer) superlattice-based detectors that operate in the 40 to 77 K temperature range. This technology will lead to the possibility of improving the performance of current infrared focal plane arrays. It will also permit the creation of very long wavelength infrared detection capab ...

  4. Automated Wafer Polishing for Epi-ready Antimony-based Substrate Materials

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA04083

    EPIR Technologies has experience in polishing II-VI semiconductor substrates for MBE applications. We propose to transfer this experience to the polishing of Sb-based substrates. The quality of a surface is determined by the degree of surface flatness (or curvature), smoothness, stoichiometry, and the magnitude of surface/sub-surface damage. All these parameters are addressed in this proposal. ...

  5. Data Driven Prognostics (Hybrid Nano-scale/Microscale Composites for Deep Thermal Cycle Damage Resistance)

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Programs such as Airborne Laser and Space-Based Laser require highly mass efficient structures. Because of their high specific strength and stiffness this naturally leads to graphite fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) materials for many system components. In fluid storage tank applications GFRP laminates often develop microcracking when subject to cryogenic temperatures and/or stresses due to press ...

  7. High Power Density Regenerative Integrated Solid Oxide Fuel Cell

    SBC: Functional Coating Technology, LLC            Topic: MDA04001

    Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) have several fundamental advantages over low temperature fuel cells for potential applications as power storage systems used at high altitudes or in space. These advantages include high power density, high hydrogen production rate, high round-trip efficiency, and long life-cycle. These advantages can lead to a substantially smaller (both weight and volume) system com ...

  8. LWIR Focal Plane Array Based on Type-II InAs/GaSb Superlattices

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA02049

    Infrared photon sensors presently available for THAAD applications, with a cutoff wavelength ~8 micron, are based on HgCdTe. These suffer from a high non-uniformity and thus a high focal plane array cost. The most promising alternative is III-V compound semiconductor superlattices based on arsenides and antimonides, such as type-II InAs/GaSb superlattices, which are expected to exhibit higher qu ...

  9. The Growth of InAs/GaSb Type II Superlattices on Si Substrates for Infrared FPAs

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA04038

    High performance infrared detectors in the mid and long wavelength infrared (MWIR and LWIR) spectral bands are highly needed in a number of missile defense missions. Type II InAs/GaSb superlattices represent the most promising material system capable of delivering a more affordable and producible focal plane array (FPA) technology than the current technology, while at the same time exhibiting sim ...
