Abstract:

This is the final report of work accomplished under contract F29601-02-C-0267 from the Air Force Research Laboratory Kirtland, which was a three-year research project with two focused objectives To develop voltage tunable two-color superlattice QWIPs and broadband QWIPs, and to fabricate quantum-dot QWIPs using nano-patterning and to investigate their infrared detection characteristics arising from the three-dimensional confinement of electrons in the semiconductor device structure. The project was funded from October 2002 to July 2004, approximately 23 of the originally agreed 3 years. Consequently, part of the second objective was not reached. More specifically, the nano-patterned quantum-dot QWIPs were fabricated, but their infrared detection characteristics were not investigated.
