Amethyst participates in the "Capitol Day" technology exhibition in honor of the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST). The event showcases 20 exhibitors as Oklahoma's governor and legislators view the diverse array of technologies taking form in the state.
Dr. Jack Dinan, formerly of the U.S. Army's Night Vision Electronic Sensors Directorate, joins Amethyst in its pursuit of next generation HgCdTe-based infrared detector technologies. Widely known for his leadership and innovation in infrared materials process technologies, and especially in MBE-grown HgCdTe devices, Dr. Dinan is a key addition to the Amethyst technical team.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) awards Amethyst a SBIR Phase II contract involving selective area hydrogenation of HgCdTe focal plane and avalanche photo-diode arrays.
The Oklahoma Center for Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST) announces that Amethyst Research has been selected for funding under its Oklahoma Applied Research Support (OARS) R&D Faculty and Student Internship Program for FY08. This highly competitive program provides a dollar-for-dollar match for up to two years of a company's expenses involved in the hiring and management of an Oklahoma college or university student or faculty intern.
