Abstract
To date, both IR polarization and spectral detectors have been developed and employed for the purpose of object discrimination imaging. Each of these detector families provides unique and complimentary data for object discrimination analysis. A hybrid detector, which is capable of both polarimetric and spectral detection would greatly enhance the range and capability of object discrimination imaging. We propose to develop a detector capable of simultaneous and congruent detection of both polarimetric and spectral source emission characteristics. This will be accomplished with the application of NanoImprint Lithography (NIL).
