BPN314: Biomimetic Infrared sensor based on the nanogap junction array


The research that will be conducted in this project is to study the phenomenon of IR detection in pyrophilous jewel beetles and then to implement a MEMS design in order to reach or exceed the thermal sensitivity of 20 mK, standardized detectivity (D*) of 10^8 and field-of-view of 180º for an uncooled photomechanic infrared sensor.
