The primary goal of this research is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing an acoustic charge transport ACT imager for high definition systems applications. The operation of the proposed camera chip can be subdivided into three distinct function image capture, charge collection and storage, and charge readout for image reconstruction. The image capture stage of the device will be a GaAsAlGaAs multiple quantum well avalanche photodiode APD. Following the APD device is a charge storage and overflow heterostructure transistor which controls charge transfer into the ACT channel for readout and processing. In the enclosed report we discuss progress towards developing each of these three aspects of the chip as well as work towards integrating these components into a successful working device.
