Abstract
Many UV photon-counting and imaging applications, including space-borne astronomy, missile tracking and guidance, UV spectroscopy for chemical/biological identification, and UV medical imaging, demand very high performance in detector sensitivity, speed, resolution, and background noise. This proposal is directed toward the development of innovative high-efficiency UV photocathodes based on the wide bandgap III-nitride semiconductors for reliable operation in space missions.
