The new technology that the Centre is investigating is based on semiconductor superlattices made from tailored combinations of materials such as Iridium Arsenide (INAS), Gallium Antimonide (GASB) and Aluminium Antimonide (AlSB), it avoids the problems commonly encountered when trying to make three-colour IR detectors by integrating multi-colour functionality into each and every detector element: "The first major obstacle is the choice of material systems that have the ability to perform over a broad range of infrared spectrum," according to the Northwestern team of Anh Minh Hoang, Arash Dehzangi, Sourav Adhikary and Manijeh Razeghi.
One is the SC6800 (Flir systems), which is equipped with a Indium Antimonide InSb MW detector, working in the 3-5 pm infrared band, spatial resolution 640 x 512 pixels full frame, frame rate 565 Hz full frame and higher with a windowing option; images are acquired at frame rate of 960 Hz.
IQE Infrared is a leading supplier of antimonide materials to the IR detector industry, with IQE's US (Galaxy Compound Semiconductors) and UK (Wafer Technology) operations providing its customers with a secure dual source of 2inch -5inch InSb and GaSb wafers.
100 nm), indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) (700 to 1,700 nm), indium antimonide (InSb) (1,000 to 5,000 nm) and mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) (1,000 to 1,4000 nm).
In this study, the structural, morphological and electrical properties of aluminium antimonide (AlSb) samples irradiated with 500,1000,1500,2000 shots of GAMKrF Excimer laser (248 nm, 25 mJ, 20 ns) under vacuum ~ 10-5torr were investigated.
Experimenters used indium antimonide nanowires to create a transistor-like device that could transform the electrons from a current applied to it into holes--literally empty spaces left when electrons are taken out.

His solution was to take a piece of the semiconductor indium antimonide and shape it into a lopsided tuning fork.
No one had reported credible evidence that they existed until 2012, when Leo Kouwenhoven at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, who had gotten funding and guidance from Microsoft, announced that he had found them inside nanowires made from the semiconductor indium antimonide.
Each model contains a cooled indium antimonide (InSb) detector, which enhances the sensitivity of each camera to detect even the smallest gas emissions.
This camera incorporates a cooled indium antimonide detector that operates in the 3- to 5-pm waveband.
The new solution is based on EV Group's ComBond(R) technology and aims to allow highly mismatched material combinations such as gallium arsenide (GaAs) on silicon, GaAs on indium phosphide (InP), InP on germanium (Ge) and GaAs on gallium antimonide (GaSb).
