Award List:

OPTICALLY ACTIVATED AVALANCHE MODE BULK SEMICONDUCTOR SWITCH

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,718.00

OPTICALLY ACTIVATED AVALANCHE MODE BULK SEMICONDUCTOR SWITCH

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $190,500.00
Abstract:
This proposal describes an optically activated gallium arsenide bulk semiconductor switch operated in the avalanchemode. two 120 watt fiber-optically coupled gallium arsenide laser arrays drive the switch. the device is diased toa substantial fraction of the voltage required for self-break down. the… More

DISTRIBUTED RADAR FOR OUTDOOR SITE SURVEILLANCE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Jeffrey Oicles
Award Amount: $49,460.00
Abstract:
Reliable detection, identification and tracking of hostile intruders into a controlled, outside area becomes extremely difficult under a variety of environmental conditions, including night, precipitation, fog and other weather related factors. the situation can deteriorate further when high value… More

WEAPONIZATION OF OPTICALLY TRIGGERED BULK SEMICONDUCTOR SWITCHES FOR PROGRAMMABLE HIGH PERFORMANCE FUZING APPLICATIONS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr Heikki Helava
Award Amount: $223,000.00
Abstract:
Previous work has shown that the bulk avalanche semiconductor switch (bass) dramatically enhances the capabilities of exploding foil initiators (efi). the very high power density capability of the bass allows very small switches. the very fast risetime and low on-state resistance make the switch… More

INNOVATIVE MEGAHERTZ OPTICALLY TRIGGERED HIGH VOLTAGE SEMICONDUCTOR AVALANCHE SWITCH FOR ACCELERATOR APPLICATIONS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Randy Curry
Award Amount: $55,669.00

HIGH CURRENT OHMIC CONTACTS FOR GALLIUM ARSENIDE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr. Charles Leung
Award Amount: $56,147.00
Abstract:
The problem of preparing reliable, uniform low-resistance ohmic contact has posed considerable problems for the gaas manufacturer, in particular for high current applications. based on the new information acquired in the last three years at power spectra and elsewhere, we now know that to fabricate… More
