WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio, 8 Sept. 2016. Electronics materials experts at UES Inc. in Dayton, Ohio, are developing new magnetic, electronic, and electro-optical materials for advanced military radar, infrared sensors, and communications.
UES engineers will attempt to develop new electronic and electro-optical materials for digital, RF, microwave, infrared detector, opto-electronic, secure communications, power generation, sensing, and control applications.
Of primary interest are new semiconductor materials, magnetic materials, optical and electro-optical materials, dielectric materials, and their heterostructures. UES also may study lifetime and failure physics to understand these kinds of new devices and materials.
UES will be involved in the design, synthesis, material growth, device fabrication and processing, and evaluation of new and modified materials and laboratory testing to evaluate materials and device performance.
Military researchers believe this study could lead to new solutions for frequency-agile operation over the broad electromagnetic spectrum; improved detection of day and night time events with high resolution or large coverage areas; sensors able to operate in high temperatures with low noise, high power density in electronic materials use; keeping device size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) to a minimum; conformal, flexible, and shock resistant electronic materials; and affordable.
The overall goal of the program, Nanoelectronics Materials Optimization (NEMO) program is to develop nanoscale materials and processing methodologies that are vital to create advanced materials and devices for future researchers.
