Research to evaluate and analyse technologies for application in novel IR and EO devices like displays. Also includes process technologies required to fabricate advanced devices, and characterisation of device structures, including nanotechnology developments. Also includes studies of micro-structured and deformable surfaces to control the scattering direction of incident radiation for stealth purposes. Also includes devices for applications in high power RF systems. Also includes MEMS fabrication technology and device developments which give rise to novel luminescence effects.
