Abstract
Aerius proposes to build detectors with low dark current and a cutoff wavelength of 3.0 um, using InP-based detectors. These detectors do not suffer from the same problems conventional "extended-wavelength" detectors suffer, such as high dark current, low quantum efficiency, and limited spectral range. Aerius proposes to achieve, high quality, high uniformity extended short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) detectors that can also be sensitive to short wavelengths in the visible. Realizing this material would extend the capabilities of sensors by detecting both reflected light and thermally generated wavelengths in one detector, reducing the cost and mass of detector deployment.
