ECE Professor and MNTL Resident Faculty member K.Y. Norman Cheng has developed a new method to enhance infrared detectors through a modification of their nanostructures. Cheng said people typically use mercury cadmium telluride alloy for detectors, which can potentially be very hard to make into two-dimensional arrays because of the material's non-uniformity.
