  1. Minority carrier lifetime measurements in Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS)

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: A09AT005

    We propose the development of a system for measuring the minority carrier lifetime in strained layer superlattices (SLS). Mid wave infrared (MWIR) and long wave infrared (LWIR) detectors based on SLS technology show promise due to the large and inexpensive focal plane arrays that can be fabricated. The devices are held back though, by excessive dark current, which is related to a poor minority car ...

  2. Impact of Climate Change on Military Compounds in the Environment

    SBC: Environmental Quality Management            Topic: A09AT024

    This will facilitate the development of remedial approaches for existing facilities and assist in planning new facilities, logistics, and procedures to protect the environment without impairing critical mission functionality. The commercial application will include software distribution and updates.

  3. Building Recognition by Function

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: ST081009

    The goal of BLUE is to identify the function or purpose of buildings using persistant surveillance video such as Constant Hawk or Angel Fire. In Phase 1, we developed preliminary algorithms demonstrating that functional recognition of buildings and other scene elements such as parking spots and doorways is possible, using both supervised and unsupervised techniques to define functional models of b ...

  5. Adaptive Integrated Multi-Modal Sensing Array

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Nanoscale infrared detectors are emerging as a potentially powerful alternative to traditional infrared detector technologies. The University of New Mexico has developed dots in a double well (DDWELL) quantum dot infrared photodetectors which have a spectral responsivity that can be tuned by controlling the bias voltage applied. In this Phase II effort, Polaris Sensor and UNM would fabricate a g ...

  6. Adaptive Quantum-Dot Photodetectors with Bias-Tunable Barriers

    SBC: ESENSORS INC.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Esensors, with SUNY at Buffalo and SUNY at Albany as a subcontractor, will simulate, fabricate, experimentally investigate, evaluate, and deliver aprototype of a new adaptive IR photodetector based on advanced quantum dot (QD) structures. The detector’s operating principle is based on a new concept of the photoelectron lifetime tunable via adjustable potential barriers in QD structures. The phot ...
