Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-132
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:nBn detectors progressed significantly to the point that dual and triple band devices become possible, especially the ability to add Hot-MWIR to multi-color FPA. ?The main challenge in improving performance of nBn devices is the minority carrier lifetime which influence the reduction of dark currents, increase operation temperature, pix...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA13-028
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

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 ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-019
Budget: 12/24/13 - 12/26/15

In this program nBn Technologies proposes to developed new nBn FPAs for long wave IR. This is based on III-V material systems grown in MBE. We will concentrate on material systems that will fit the nBn concept, especially holes transport and passivation free (the barrier used as passivation).The progress for this new material system has been ver...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-019
Budget: 03/01/12 - 08/31/12

nBn Technologies will research the ability to make a new III-V compound alloy using InAsBi for long wave IR applications. The objective of the proposed research is to find a procedure for growing materials using Bismuth and characterize them by morphology, photoluminescence, x-ray diffraction, hall, etc. For applications needing cutoff waveleng...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-083
Budget: 03/22/11 - 03/22/13

The objective of the SBIR Phase II program will be to further develop and fabricate nBn type hand held MWIR cameras that demonstrate power consumption ~1W through utilization of high operating temperature nBn detectors, low-power micro-coolers, and low power imaging electronics. In Phase I nBn Technologies successfully demonstrated the abilities...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-083
Budget: 12/14/09 - 06/14/10

Next generation midwave infrared (MWIR) (3 to 5 micron) FPA s will need to be able to operate at temperatures exceeding 170K with similar performance to InSb FPA s. The advantages of the increased operating temperature include; reduced power consumption to under 1W, extended the camera operating time between servicing to over 10 years, and red...
