We design, develop, and deliver new, improved, and/or next-generation infrared detectors and emitters for the government and commercial markets.
Amethyst Research Inc, was formed in 2004. Our initial mission was developing defect passivation technologies for improved operability of II-VI and III-V semiconductor FPAs sensors and detectors for the US Department of Defense.Since then, we have aggressively built up our know-how and expertise to include:
Thanks to our Materials Growth and Device Prototyping Platform, we can provide you with a fully
customized infrared solution, ranging from materials growth and device design to small
Our product-oriented solutions pick up where commercial products leave off, with unique sets of capabilities, ultra-high performance, and cost-effectiveness.
We have been growing a network of partners and customers for the past 20 years. This group now includes
many leading universities, national laboratories, government agencies and key industrial players—from
materials companies to systems integrators / prime contractors. Integral to our mission is to offer you
