With the success of this SBIR to develop resonant Type II SLS technology, both the military and commercial markets stand to benefit greatly. The SLS technology offers the opportunity to realize very high sensitivity thermal imager operating at higher operating temperature from mid wave to long wavelength, and to very long wavelength infrared based on readily available GaSb substrates. With GaSb material system, very large format FPA will be possible. Currently, 4" diameter substrate is already available. Further, p-QWIP can piggy back on the III-V semiconductor industry for rapid product ramp up. For the military, this opens the door for more vehicles/platforms to be outfitted with these high performance cameras. Commercial business such as environmental or gas sensing can benefit from very competitive eventual cost structure. Completion of this SBIR will enable Type II SLS technology to serve as a platform for the next generation of high performance and large format infrared FPAs. This will be a further performance enhancement to the on going SLS technology being developed at JPL. SLS will be an enabling technology for the exotic and often very specialized infrared imaging NASA needs such as this high sensitivity and high operating temperature sensor for space-based applications. As a band-gap engineered device, the spectral response for SLS can also be custom tailored to suit NASA or customer specialty needs. GaSb being a III-V-based is particularly attractive because it can be processed in conventional III-V compound semiconductor fab line. Because SLS couples to normal incident radiation, no complex coupling schemes such as grating is required¬óthus significantly simplifies device processing.
