ZnMgO Nanowire Based Detectors and Detector Arrays

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

ZnMgO Nanowire Based Detectors and Detector Arrays Project Image
In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries (SMI) and partners propose to develop an electrically contacted zinc magnesium oxide (ZnMgO) nanowire array for highly efficient UV focal plane arrays. The properties of ZnMgO make it a very promising material for optoelectronic devices. In particular, the wide bandgap (3.37 eV) and large exciton binding energy (60 meV), and the ability to fabricate stable, uniform ZnMgO nanowires make the material attractive as a sensor material.
