  1. High Speed Room Temperature IR Camera Based on Plasmon Physics

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: ST051005

    It is desirable to make focal plane arrays (or imaging arrays) with reduced pitch; doing so enables smaller, cheaper and lighter camera systems that provide the same image resolution. Currently, the lower limit on pitch is set by electron/hole diffusion and light diffraction that results in crosstalk between neighboring pixels. Since electron hole pairs generated outside the depletion layer can ...
