WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio, 8 Sept. 2016. Electronics materials experts at UES Inc. in Dayton, Ohio, are developing new magnetic, electronic, and electro-optical materials for advanced military radar, infrared sensors, and communications.

Officials of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, Announced a $42 million research contract to UES on Wednesday for the Nanoelectronics Materials Optimization (NEMO) program.

UES engineers will attempt to develop new electronic and electro-optical materials for digital, RF, microwave, infrared detector, opto-electronic, secure communications, power generation, sensing, and control applications.

Of primary interest are new semiconductor materials, magnetic materials, optical and electro-optical materials, dielectric materials, and their heterostructures. UES also may study lifetime and failure physics to understand these kinds of new devices and materials.
