Research Institution
The work proposed in this SBIR proposal is intended to follow the basic R&D effort of a consortium of national laboratories, universities, and industry, led by Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago for the development of new, large area, photo-detector devices. This project proposes to address the commercialization gap that exists between the proof-of-principle large area photo-detector (LAPD) program and the efficient manufacture of large area Microchannel plate devices using atomic layer deposition (ALD). For programs such as the Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory (DUSEL) project and other applications in high energy physics, medical discovery and diagnostics and homeland security applications this will be transformational. Arradiance, as the key commercial ALD component of the Argonne LAPD collaboration, will develop productive recipes, without sacrificing MCP performance, for the LAPD device. In parallel, Arradiance will develop production equipment that can effectively and efficiently produce the large area MCP devices, in which a single 8
