Research Topics


This Phase I SBIR effort will develop robust and high performance infrared detector technology based on GaSb-based Type II strained-layer superlattices (SLS). The epitaxy development effort will focus on improving QE, reducing dark current, and reducing defects. The device design will be based on the NASA-JPL CBIRD structure. Advanced dual-band LW/LW design based on CBIRD will also be explored.
