Abstract: In this report, our attention is focused on the fabrication, laser processing, and electrical testing of integrated prototype infrared (IR)-device heterostructures. The program goals correspond to the continued expansion of our barium titanate (BaTiO3) and barium strontium titanate (Ba1–xSrxTiO3) nanomaterial synthesis capabilities and deposition methods; laser-induced pyroelectric phase conversion studies and nanoscale characterization of the pyroelectric activation process; and fabrication and electrical testing of standardized IR heterostructures.
