nBn Technologies proposes using our new absorber materials for dual color long wave infrared (LWIR) nBn FPAs. Our optimized nBn structure and devices show state of the art performance in the long wave infrared regime with greater quantum efficiency in top and bottom illumination due to to low dark current. Our main goal in this phase-II is to develop and demonstrate dual color nBn FPAs utilizing our passivation free, barrier structure design to ensure holes transport from both long wave bands in polarized orientation dual color using one bump per pixel.
