SBC: Nanolight, Inc. Topic: MDA06T011
The objective of this proposal is to further develop IV-VI PbSnSe detectors epitaxially grown on Si substrates. The motivation of fabricating IV-VI detector arrays on Si is based on the following advantages of IV-VI Pb-salt semiconductors. (1) The large dielectric constant helps screen and localize the defect related effects. (2) The epitaxial material on Si is highly uniform, and thus the cutoff ...STTR Phase II 2007 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
Passivation Technologies for Improved Operability and Radiation Tolerance in VLWIR HgCdTe Focal Plane ArraysSBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED Topic: MDA06025
HgCdTe, with its high quantum efficiency, remains the material of choice for most high-performance infrared detector applications. By varying its alloy composition, HgCdTe can be used for short wavelength to very long wavelength infrared (VLWIR); however, its use in VLWIR (12-16 microns) applications is problematic, even when grown on lattice-matched CdZnTe substrates, due to material and substrat ...SBIR Phase I 2007 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
