Particle Systems and the Particle Engineering Reserach Center (PERC) of the university of Florida propose to develop high aspect ratio dielectric particles with metallic coating providing optimal cross section in the visible and IR wavelengths. Phase I effort will produce sufficeient material to test the concept and scale up to production level will follow.
