The US Army’s future operating concept will rely heavily on sensors, nano-electronics and photonics technologies to rapidly develop situational understanding in challenging and complex environments. To meet this challenge, ARL has identified a strategic need to foster and accelerate collaborative research related to the modeling of advanced electro-optic semiconductor materials and devices. The Center for Semiconductor Modeling of Materials and Devices (CSDM) will act as a repository of a broad base of modeling knowledge to be shared across the community in order to foster the development of new materials and devices as well as to reduce the timeline between “discovery” and manufacturing.
Point of Contact
Meredith Reed, Ph.D.
Open to national and defense labs, universities and industry.
Concept of Operation
The CSDM will establish an overarching cooperative research and development agreement that defines the extent of collaboration conducted under the center and defines the disposition of Intellectual property and the sharing of research outcomes and laboratory resources.
