A manufacturer is looking for a detector array for the infrared region to detect two-dimensional radiation patterns. The sensor should have 1000 x 1000 pixels (or at least 512 x 512 pixels), which are individually addressable. The detector array is comparable to a high-speed CCD chip, but must have high sensitivity in the infrared around 1,300 nm. The detector should have a spectral sensitivity of 800 to 2,000 nm, with best performance at 1,200 to 1,400 nm. Click here to respond to this Tech Need .

A company is seeking technologies to increase functionality of LCD displays. Of special interest are newly developed materials with unique optical characteristics that may lead to future cost reductions. These technologies include thin-film polarizers, high-modulus coating solutions, cross-link-free adhesives, and submicron structures. New and different properties within backlight units for LCDs are sought. Click here to respond to this Tech Need .
