Abstract
Agiltron will develop the Silicon Nanowire Phototransistor (SNAP) Imager, a silicon-based imager with unprecedented capability for low light level imaging. The unique nanoscale architecture of the fully CMOS-compatible silicon nanowire phototransistor enables uncooled operation with low dark current and strong visible, NIR, and SWIR sensitivity. When monolithically integrated with CMOS readout integrated circuitry (ROIC) at the pixel level, a highly compact, solid state, low light level imager with uncooled operation and performance equivalent to a Gen-3 image intensifier tube will be realized, making it ideally suited for helmet- or eyeglass-mounted operation.
