Abstract
The AEgis Technologies Group, Inc. proposes to develop a 2D focal plane array UV/VIS light modulator using MEMS-based diffractive grating technology that will greatly enhance the capability of HWIL test systems. Grating ElectroMechanical Systems (GEMS) technology developed by Kodak Eastman will be enhanced and modified to accomplish a wideband, analog modulator capable of providing significantly higher dynamic range and optical power than is possible with any existing technology. In this Phase-I effort, AEgis will investigate the optical, electrical, and mechanical modifications required to successfully meet these goals. Modification of the diffractive grating and reflective membrane to expand the bandwidth will be investigated. Enhancement of integrated circuit elements to accommodate the 2D array format and provide true analog control of the modulation.
