Uncooled multispectral photoemissive infrared detector, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Using novel materials and device geometries unique to North Carolina State University (NCSU) and Third Floor Materials (3FM) this program will develop a detector technology that enables room-temperature multispectral IR imaging by exploring transduction pathways between infra red light and a measureable electric signal mediated by an epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) mode. The research activity will use a combination of physical vapor deposition, conventional microelectronic fabrication methods, and a combination of optical and electronic modeling tools to design and create a prototype IR detector element that can be tested by an external laboratory. A suite of materials characterization tools will be implemented to characterize structure and morphology, while a suite of property measurement systems will be used to quantify sensor performance in the context of currently available detector technologies.
