Epitaxial Thermochromic Thin Films for Optical Modulator Applications via CCVD

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02T-00
Budget: 10/10/02 - 04/10/03
PI: Dr. Yongdong Jiang

The continued proliferation of imaging infrared (IR) missile systems has created the need for fully representative IR scene generators. In order to test these imaging IR systems correctly, a very large dynamic range is required of the scene generator. This can not easily be produced by the standard approach of an array of suspended resistor heat...
