Title: Development of IR Transparent, Electrical Conductive Mg Doped CuCrO2 Films for Spinel Windows
Agency: DOD
Contract: N68936-12-C-0082
Award Amount: $80,000.00
 

Abstract:

This Phase I SBIR program proposes the development of infrared transparent, p-type conducting Mg doped CuCrO2 films (CuCr1-xMgxO2, CCMO), which has sheet resistance less than 10 ohms squared, as the replacement of the electrical conductive metal grids for Magnesium Aluminate Spinel (MgAl2O4) windows. The CCMO films deposited on spinel windows by RF Magnetron Sputtering System (RFMSS) will serve as electromagnetic shielding of electro-optic sensor electronics as well as an anti-reflective coating for spinel windows. By controlling the thickness of the CCMO films, the transmission of spinel windows will be more than 90% in the 3 to 5 fYm wavelength region.
