Abstract
This SBIR program will demonstrate the potential of magnetron sputtering to deposit pyrophoric thin film compositions with novel microstructures. Their extremely high surface area-to-volume ratios and their controllable chemical compositions make these thin film materials excellent candidates for "smart decoys" for infrared countermeasures. We will deposit such films on suitable substrates and measure their infrared emissions to demonstrate that their infrared output, burn duration, and spontaneous ignition characteristics match or exceed those of current materials.
