1.  Dr. Meimei Tidrow, U.S. Army NVESD, USA
Late-Breaking Results: Overview of Strained Layer Superlattice Technology and Recent Progress in US
Speaker Biography: Dr. Meimei Tidrow holds the highest technical rank ST (Senior Technical Professional) in US government at the Army Night Vision Lab. She is the Chief Scientist at NVESD for FPAs. Prior to joining NVESD, Dr. Tidrow was an ST at the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) serving as the Technical Advisor to the Director of the Advanced Technology and the Program Manager for the Passive EO/IR Program. Prior to MDA, Dr. Tidrow was a Research Physicist at the Army Research Lab. She has extensive experience in III-V infrared material and device research. She has published more than 100 journal and conference papers and has given more than 70 invited talks in the infrared technology area. She is a Military Sensing Symposia (MSS) Fellow and SPIE Fellow.

Summary: Antimony based type II strained layer superlattice (SLS) is a relatively new infrared detector material that holds great potential for future infrared systems in both military and commercial applications. This is the only infrared material that has a theoretical promise to exceed the HgCdTe performance at the same operating temperatures. In the past few years, rapid progress has been made in developing SLS-based infrared detectors and FPAs. The performance of these detectors and FPAs are approaching those made of HgCdTe materials. Fundamental studies on the minority carrier lifetimes also show great promise of this material to be able to compete with HgCdTe. This paper will give an overview of the SLS technologies and recent progress made in the US. Remaining technical issues and challenges will also be discussed.
