Abstract

This Phase II SBIR effort will develop high performance infrared detector arrays for MDA space applications using advanced barrier structure type-II superlattices based on GaSb. The epitaxy development will increase performance (QE, low dark current) with design iterations of NRL hybrid superlattice barrier structures for single-color large-format LWIR and two-color FPA.
