Abstract
We propose to combine Purdue University's expertise in the area of nano-scale antennae with QmagiQ's Qwip technology to develop a new class of polarimetric longwave infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs). The Phase 1 effort will pave the way toward the development in Phase 2 of dual-band polarimetric FPAs producing simultaneous imagery in two spectral bands with polarization discrimination capability, all embedded within a single integrated package. BENEFIT: Multispectral polarimetric FPAs will enhance target recognition, identification and discrimination by combining polarization information, spectral content, spatial and temporal information provided by the imaging array. The polarimetric properties of the FPA will have applications in remote environmental sensing applications.
