Microplasma arrays for solar blind ultraviolet scene generation are being investigated in a Phase II SBIR program. An overview of the project and current status is presented. Preliminary work indicates that high flux with either spectral line or broadband radiant emission is possible. Two separate design approaches are being evaluated with array formats up to 100×100 planned for testing. Spectral emission from plasmas formed by multiple gas species have been characterized and several chosen for use in arrays. Design trades between parameters such as: frame rate, # bits of resolution, input power, flux levels, and gas species will be evaluated. The performance of a future system will be estimated.
