Abstract
A PROPOSAL IS MADE TO DEVELOP STRAINED SUPERLATTICE (SSL) STRUCTURE OF INAS(1-X)SB(X) BY MOLECULAR BEAM EPITAXY (MBE) FOR FABRICATING LONG WAVELENGTH INFRARED (LWIR) DETECTORS. A SPECIAL BUFFERED SUBSTRATE WILL BE USED FOR THE INAS(1-X)SB(X) EPITAXY, AIMED AT ACHIEVING UNIFORM EPI LAYER HAVING A CUTOFF WAVELENGTH OF 12 MICRON AT 77K. IN PHASE I, SPECIAL MBE FIXTURES WILL BE DESIGNED AND MBE PROCESSES WILL BE DELINATED. THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROGRAM WILL LEAD TO MORE REPRODUCIBLE, UNIFORM AND SENSITIVE DETECTORS THAN THOSE OF LWIR HGCDTE.
