Research and development in Advanced Technology focus on the invention of new device concepts, the practical realization of those devices, and their integration into subsystems. Although many of these devices continue to be based on solid-state electronic or electro-optical technologies, recent work is highly multidisciplinary, and current devices increasingly exploit biotechnology and innovative chemistry. The broad scope of Advanced Technology work includes the development of unique high-performance detectors and focal planes, 3D integrated circuits, biological and chemical agent sensors, diode lasers and photonic devices using compound semiconductors and silicon-based technologies, microelectromechanical devices, RF technology, and unique lasers including high-power fiber and cryogenic lasers.
