The IBATCE system will be used to initiate an extensive research on oxide materials, such as fabrication of HTS bolometer infrared detectors, through collaboration with DoD laboratories and other institutions. The driving force for this research is the DoDs need for high-sensitivity infrared detectors in long-very-long wavelength ranges. The focus of the proposed research is to understand the growth mechanism of the HTS multilayer-structured bolometer infrared detectors in IBATCE process and to obtain high device performance by optimizing the thin-film quality and device designs. The long-term goal of this research is to build a competitive project in Kansas in the emerging field of oxide materials and to bring in significant amount of federal research funds. The requested DEPSCoR fund is crucial to the success of the proposed research and such a success certainly benefits the State of Kansas economy and meets the goal of DEPSCoR program.
