Abstract
Next generation EO/IR sensors are needed for a variety of Military Systems Applications. These include UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands. Magnolia as part of the proposed Phase II STTR Program plans to design, model and develop Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) based detector array for next generation multicolor IR imaging applications. The key components of the Program will include evaluating new and innovative device design, modeling, growth, fabrications, characterization and demonstration of SLS based detector arrays. Magnolia team has excellent capability in developing the models for SLS based infrared detector arrays, growth, fabrication and characterization of SLS device structures for IRFPA applications. Magnolia plans to demonstrate high performance and low dark current SLS based detectors and arrays for infrared imaging applications that will complement any future DARPA efforts.
