Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA02-049
Budget: 12/19/02 - 06/18/03

We propose here a new generation of two color superlattice-based VLWIR detectors. The objective will be achieved by combining the advantages of the molecular beam epitaxy(MBE) crystal growth technique, and band gap engineering of a superlattice structure with reduced tunneling currents and accurate control of cut-off wavelengths. The proposed te...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA02-048
Budget: 12/16/02 - 06/16/03

Avalanche photodetectors (APD) focal plane arrays (FPAs), with high sensitivity and large dynamic range are the most promising photodetectors for three dimensional imaging LADAR systems due to their low detectable powers and high performance. However, many present-day devices have poor bandwidths and noise properties because they exhibit compara...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-046
Budget: 05/13/02 - 05/16/03

We propose a new generation of non-equilibrium superlattice, high efficiency VLWIR(14 um and longer) detectors that operate in the 40-77K temperature range. The objectives will be achieved by combining the advantages of the molecular beam epitaxy(MBE) crystal growth technique, an innovative non-equilibrium device architecture, and a superlattice...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois, Chicago

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO01T001
Budget: 09/17/01 - 03/17/02

HgCdTe infrared arrays operating at 77K can now be tailored to a wide range of wavelengths ranging from 1 to 14 mm. However, the cooling requirements of traditional detectors make them bulky and unsuitable for many applications. Due to advancements in materials and device technologies, it is now possible to fabricate HgCdTe-based infrared array...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99-003
Budget: 08/09/01 - 08/08/03

The availability of large format, multicolor, high performance infrared focal plane arrays is of the utmost importance to future DoD missions. The semiconductor HgCdTe is the material of choice for multicolor arrays due to its bandgap tunability throughout the infrared spectral range and its high quantum efficiency. Present day 2nd generation ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-003
Budget: 05/10/00 - 11/09/00

The infrared technology has provided the theatrical superiority to U.S Defense. Intensive research and development efforts have led to the existence of a robust infrared focal plane array (IRFPA) technology for small and medium size formats. 256 x 256 IRFPAs are available for inclusion into military systems and 480 x 640 have been demonstrated. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99-003
Budget: 05/13/99 - 11/12/99

The availability of large amount format, multicolor, staring infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPA's) is of utmost importance for DOD mission for the next millennium. Due to its bandgap tunability in the entire IR range and its high quantum efficiency, HgCdTe is the material of choice for multicolor IRFPA's. However, the development of large HgCdT...
