abstract

EO/IR Sensors and imagers using nanostructure based materials are being developed for a variety of Defense Applications. In this paper, we will discuss recent modeling effort and the experimental work under way for development of next generation carbon nanostructure based infrared detectors and arrays. We will discuss detector concepts that will provide next generation high performance, high frame rate, and uncooled nano-bolometer for MWIR and LWIR bands. The critical technologies being developed include carbon nanostructure growth, characterization, optical and electronic properties that show the feasibility for IR detection. Experimental results on CNT nanostructures will be presented. We will discuss the path forward to demonstrate enhanced IR sensitivity and larger arrays.
