Research Institution
Forza Silicon and SiOnyx are teaming up to deliver Black Silicon enhanced detection technology to solve critical warfighter needs. Black Silicon represents an advanced detection technology with broad spectral sensitivity fabricated on a standard CMOS silicon process flow. The demonstrated sensitivity spans from 400 to 1200 nm with dramatic enhancements at the critical 1064nm laser node. Remarkably this performance is achieved at room temperature without the need for cooling. Imaging arrays based on this technology will provide a digital nightvision imaging technology with added benefits of direct 1064nm See Spot imaging on a highly scalable low SWaP CMOS silicon platform.
