Abstract
WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A PATTERNED ETCHING TECHNIQUE FOR INFRARED DETECTOR ARRAYS BASED ON PHOTO-INDUCED ETCHING OF HGCDTE THAT IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE ULTRA-HIGH VACUUM ENVIRONMENT OF A MOLECULAR BEAM EPITAXY APPARATUSES. THE PHASE I RESEARCH FOCUSES ON ESTABLISHING THE EFFICACY OF SUITABLE GAS PHASE PRECURSORS FOR THE ETCHING PROCESS. IF THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS SUCCESSFUL, OPTICAL PROJECTION TECHNIQUES WILL BE USED TO PRODUCE ARRAY STRUCTURES. SIMILAR TECHNIQUES MAY BE SUITABLE FOR MAKING OHMIC CONTACTS TO THE MESAS FORMED BY THE ETCHING STEP.
