Compact Mid-Ultraviolet Technology: DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of efficient middle ultraviolet (200-300 nm) emitter technology. The goal of the Compact Mid-Ultraviolet Technology program is to develop the essential heteroepitaxy, waveguides, cavities, and contacts to enable efficient light emitting diodes (LEDs) and chip-scale semiconductor lasers operating at wavelengths below 275nm. Other compact technologies resulting in mid-UV lasers will also be considered to the extent that an overall footprint and performance competitive with a semiconductor solution can be reasonably achieved. These ultraviolet devices will significantly improve the size, weight, power, and capability of chemical/biological-agent detectors, portable water purification illuminators, and numerous other UV-dependent applications with respect to existing systems. Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices, or systems. Specifically excluded is research that primarily results in evolutionary improvements to the existing state of practice. Full DARPA-BAA-10-45 attached.
