Brief description This project aims to develop bandgap engineered mercury cadmium telluride heterostructures on gallium antimonide alternative substrates to enable high performance lower-cost infrared sensors with high yield, large array size, multiband detection and higher operating temperature. High performance infrared sensors and systems are core enabling technologies in civilian and defence applications such as remote sensing, environmental monitoring, night vision and national security. This project expects to research into defect generation mechanisms in epitaxial growth of semiconducting mercury cadmium telluride on lattice mismatched substrates. This is expected to contribute to Australian industry sectors, thereby benefiting the Australian economy, society, environment, and national security.
