The Material System and Manufacturing
QWIP Technologies manufactures n-type QWIPs using the well understood gallium arsenide (GaAs) material system. As GaAs processing is mature and well developed, we can construct QWIPChipsTM relatively easily compared to systems such as MCT. This facilitates the construction of large formats while still maintaining uniformity and operability. The end result are high performance large format FPAs at a cost effective price.
