Stressed Pillar-Engineered CMOS Technology Readied for Evanescence (SPECTRE) silicon/air battery, the SPECTRE battery is a fully transient power supply that, when triggered, becomes unobservable to the human eye. The objective is to (1) design, build, and prove a vanishing silicon/air battery, and (2) transition the proven technology to a semiconductor foundry to yield a deployable, realistic, and scalable power supply for use by DARPA customers. To meet these objectives, a self-destructing silicon/air battery that incorporates a platform for CMOS and MEMS circuitry as the battery anode will be created. The proposed Advanced Study will prove performance using an anode that incorporates a representative dielectric film and interconnect.
