Award List:

Aluminum-Nitride Infrared Window Materials for High Heat Load Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Douglas P. Dufaux
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Feasibility of fabricating IR window materials from aluminum nitride (AlN) will be demonstrated. Aluminum nitride windows are sought as replacements for sapphire windows on high speed seeker missiles because of their higher thermal shock resistance. Our approach is to consolidate high-purity… More
