11 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.03
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

We propose to advance the Ga-free InAs/InAsSb type II superlattice (T2SL) materials technology for very long wavelength infrared (VLWIR) focal plane arrays (FPAs) by passivating lifetime-limiting defects with hydrogen from inductively coupled plasma (ICP) H2-plasmas. In Phase II, 1k x 1k detector arrays will be fabricated and hybridized to match...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: MDA14-021
Budget: 06/03/16 - 06/03/18

Absorber layers based on Type-II superlattices (T2SLs) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. InAs and InSb) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, quantum efficiencies from as-grown T2SL material often falls short of the design target, particularly in high-Sb, LWIR T2SL designs that should provide high absorpt...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA15-024
Budget: 12/18/15 - 12/17/17

We propose to develop a non-destructive test method to identify and quantify the formation of red plague corrosion within an insulated silver-plated copper wire. Cross-linked ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene (XL-ETFE)-insulated silver-plated copper wire demonstrates high performance and is commonly used in military and aerospace applications as hook...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-041
Budget: 09/14/15 - 03/11/16

Absorber layers based on strained layer superlattice (SLS) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. GaSb and InAs/Sb) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, dark currents and short carrier lifetimes in SLS are still significant problems. It is presently suspected that the short carrier lifetimes and some dark cur...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Chicago

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST13B-002
Budget: 01/16/15 - 01/15/17

The primary goal of this proposed effort is to develop mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane arrays (FPAs) to significantly reduce the cost of MWIR photon imagers. The current lack of such low-cost systems leaves unm

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD13-105
Budget: 09/25/14 - 09/29/15

The primary goal of this proposed work is to develop a long wavelength infrared (LWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane array (FPA) and show its feasibility when used in a camera system and a hyperspectral imaging system. Phase I results cumulated in the first-ever synthesis of photoresponsive LWIR CQDs and CQD-based photodetectors ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Chicago

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST13B-002
Budget: 03/28/14 - 09/30/14

The primary goal of this proposed effort is to develop mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane arrays (FPAs) to significantly reduce the cost of MWIR photon imagers. In order to realize this goal, it will first be nec

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA14-021
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Absorber layers based on Type-II superlattices (T2SLs) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. GaSb and InAs) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, dark currents and short carrier lifetimes in the Ga-containing T2SL are significant problems. It is presently suspected that the short carrier lifetimes and some d...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD13-105
Budget: 07/23/13 - 01/22/14

The primary goal of this proposed work is to develop a long wave infrared (LWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane array (FPA) in order to significantly reduce the cost of LWIR hyperspectral imagers. In order to realize this goal, it will first be necessary to successfully fabricate and demonstrate the performance of novel LWIR HgTe...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois, Chicago

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-T002
Budget: 01/29/13 - 01/29/15

In Phase I, Sivananthan Laboratories (SL) demonstrated the ability to polish Si(211) wafers, as supplied by a vendor with an already fine polish, to an even better surface smoothness and uniformity. SL also demonstrated the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) growth of CdTe films with better crystalline quality and uniformity using SL-polished 2 cm x ...
