Abstract: This report describes the highlights and summary of the year two, quarters two and three progress for the 6.2 project "Improved Sensitivity Low-Cost Uncooled IR Detector Focal-Plane Arrays". This work occurred during the August 2009January 2010 time period. The program goals for year 2-quarters 2&3 corresponded to the continued expansion of our BaTiO3 nanomaterial synthesis capabilities and deposition methods, laser-induced pyroelectric phase conversion studies and nanoscale characterization of the pyroelectric activation process, and fabrication of IR test heterostructures for pyroelectrical analysis, along with the development of a technique for generating the requisite IR absorbing layer.
