Abstract:

Instrumentation is requested for probing the surface morphology and composition of electronicoptical materials with Air Force applications. This instrumentation is needed for development of advanced materials processing methods for new RFoptical and infrared devices. The Air Force needs for such devices are in 1 optically controlled phased array radar or in optical transmission of RF signals and 2 mid-IR countermeasure systems. The requested items fall into two categories instrumentation for imaging of etched or ion-sliced ferroelectric surfaces and instrumentation for in situ diagnostics of infrared materials being etched or surface passivated in a UHV environment. The instrumentation will be used in a large multidisciplinary laboratory with a proven record of research and collaboration with DoD laboratories and industries.
