Abstract
ABSTRACT: The team will develop a direct view infrared display utilizing an active thin film metamaterial emitter technology. Utilizing standalone thin films that are released from the substrate locally, an active device area with ultra-low thermal mass is obtained enabling high frames in excess of 100 fps. This technology will enable dynamic intra-band multispectral infrared displays capable of simulating IR scenes in the LWIR frequency band. We believe this approach is readily capable to enable simultaneous scene generation across multiple bands (i.e. SWIR, MWIR, LWIR). BENEFIT: Direct view infrared displays will enable immersive IR simulation environments for multi-aperture sensor systems. Ultra-low thermal mass thin films technology will enable high frame rates to be obtained. Direct view infrared displays have another useful application in active IR camouflage at high dynamic rates.
