Abstract: The program goals for year 2-quarter 1 (Y2Q1) Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies project 'Lower Cost Uncooled IR Detector Focal Plane Arrays' included (1) the continued expansion of our barium titanium oxide (BaTiO3) nanomaterial synthesis capabilities and deposition methods, (2) laser-induced pyroelectric phase conversion studies and spectroscopic end-point control scheme, and (3) comprehensive material characterization studies, along with electrical property characterization of BaTiO3 thin films. This report covers progress that took place in the three month period from May 1, 2009-July 30, 2009.
