  7. Dispersion-Enhanced Multiplexed Photopolymer Graft for Multiwavelength Distributed Optical Interconnection Networks

    SBC: RADIANT RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To further enhance the bandwidth promised by optics, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) scheme is becoming one of the major thrusts in photonics research. Most of the WDMs demonstrated are made out of glass and III-V compound semiconductor. The non-multiplexibility and the small index modulation of these inorganic materials result in severe restrictions that make WDM systems incapable of handl ...

  8. Doping of SiC Using Seeded Supersonic Beams

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Controlled doping of silicon carbide (SiC) during epitaxial growth remains a significant problem due to the amphoteric nature of many dopants and competition for active sites between the dopants, silicon and carbon atoms. Currently, the most promising avenue for controlled doping of SiC is a process called site competition epitaxy which is a technique based on adjusting the SitC ratio within the g ...
