The research description contains 5 tasks divided into two general areas The first area is the area of nanomatenals and nanophotonics Two tasks are described there, the first being to understand and develop applications for a new class of nanostructured thin films, the second exploring circumstances in which metal films can transmit a high fraction of an incident electromagnetic wave. The second area of research is in new optoelectronic materials. devices and systems The first task here is the development of full-duplex free space. solar blind communications system that could be of significant use in satellite to satellite communications The second task involves research on nanoheteroepitaxial NHE GaN films on SiC substrates We will target an emission wavelength of 280 nm, which is appropriate for many of the biological species of interest Finally a new compound semiconductor alloy, InNAs, will be investigated in the last task for its role in far-IR sources and detectors of interest to the Air Force.
