  2. High Speed Room Temperature Single Photon Counters

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: A11aT008

    Detecting light at the single photon level is a fundamental measurement function that is useful in a wide variety of applications, including such diverse fields as biological spectroscopy, laser ranging, and quantum communications. Avalanche photodiode (APD) based single photon detectors (SPDs) are very convenient in that they are small solid state devices that don"t require cryogenic cooling. Si- ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  8. Modified Nanoparticles for Lipophilic Toxin Sequestration

    SBC: AuraSense, LLC            Topic: AF10BT24

    ABSTRACT: Mycotoxins are a class of weaponizable toxic secondary metabolites of molds and fungi. No treatments exist for exposure to these lipophilic poisons. AuraSense proposes to use lipid and protein modified gold nanoparticles to develop constructs for the sequestration of toxic lipophilic molecules. Nanoparticles are ideal materials for development of such a system, as they are able to be fi ...
