  1. Nitride, Carbide and Non-Oxide In Situ Coatings Using RECVD,A New CVD Method

    SBC: CCVD, Inc dba MicroCoating Technologies (MCT)            Topic: N/A

    Currently, thermal spray (flame and plasma spray) is the only single step method of applying most metal and non-oxide ceramic coatings to large objects. These coatings are usually of a low quality, and thin films cannot be applied. An in situ deposition technique that inexpensively and easily applies nitrides, carbides and other non-oxide thin or thick films in an environmentally friendly manner i ...

  2. Production Friendly GaN Coatings Using RECVD, a New CVD Method

    SBC: CCVD, Inc dba MicroCoating Technologies (MCT)            Topic: N/A

    Currently vacuum based methods of PVD and CVD are the only processes for forming GaN thin films and coatings. These methods are usually expensive and are not applied in a production friendly manner. An atmospheric deposition technique that inexpensively and easily applies GaN thin or thick films in an environmentally friendly manner is a priority for any number of DOD and commercial applications. ...

  3. Powder Synthesis and Bulk Crystal Growth of Gallium Nitride

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The primary goal of Phase I work is to demonstrate the feasibility of synthesizing gallium nitride (GaN) powder. Secondarily, this powder will be used to grow high-purity single crystals of GaN from a liquid GaN phase. This would be accomplished using a proprietary variation of the skull melting technique. Since GaN demonstrates peritectic-type decomposition at atmospheric pressure, the entire sku ...

  4. Demonstration of Resonant Excitation for Producing 60 Hz AC Power Directly From High Frequency Alternators

    SBC: DIRIGO R&D, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project seeks to demonstrate the practicality of using resonant circuit techniques to excite the field of specially designed high frequency alternators for the efficient production of 60 Hz AC power. The project will also explore the practicality of controlling the resonant excitation so that the device power output can be synchronized with and n coupled to an existing power grid. Tests will ...

  5. Chip-Levewl Doppler Laser Radar

    SBC: LIGHTWORKS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Recent progress in self-mixing Doppler sensors have proven that measurement performance similar to that obtained with continuous-wave coherent laser radar is feasible, but with at least an order of magnitude less complexity and cost. We believe that extremely simple hardware signal processors can also be built as single chips, or at most a few chips. This points to the possibility of developing hi ...

  6. High-Density, Reconfigurable Optical Routing Interconnects

    SBC: Macro-vision Communications,            Topic: N/A

    High-density reconfigurable optical routing interconnect is introduced in this SBIR program for optical signal processing. This structure is based on three key features: 1) Polarization manipulation using 2-D spatial light modulators; 2) polarization complementary geometry; and 3) the throw-away undesired optical energies design. The polarization manipulation provides the basis for "no-moving" par ...

  7. SiC IR Emitter on Large Area Flexible Substrates for thermophotovoltaic Applications

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Materials Research Group, Inc. (MRG) proposes the process development of low-temperature fabrication processes for thin film silicon carbide (SiC) infrared (IR) emitter on flexible substrates for thermophotovoltaic (TPV) applications. Optimizing the emitter is critical to an effective TPV system. The outstanding thermal and chemical stability of SiC enable it to operate at high temperatures up to ...

  8. Wide-Angle Resonant Cavities for Superior Light Emitters

    SBC: PICOLIGHT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a program to determine the feasibility of forming an entirely new class of optical structures: wide-angle resonant cavities (WARCs). A WARC-structured light emitting diode would have "laser-like" high efficiency and modulation speeds. A WARC-structured vertical cavity laser would have low threshold currents and extremely high speeds. The device characteristics sought are si ...

  9. Controlled Oxide Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers with Lateral Oxidation Barriers

    SBC: PICOLIGHT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a fabrication-intensive program to determine the feasibility of fabricating oxide vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (oxide VCSELs) whose unoxidized current apertures comprise lateral oxidation barriers. Although oxide VCSELs have spectacular performances (50% wallplug efficiency, etc.) their manufacturability is questionable since the oxidation process forming the cur ...

  10. Long-Wavelength Oxide Vertical-Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers

    SBC: PICOLIGHT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes an experimental program to determine the feasibility of fabricating long-wavelength (>1.3um) oxide vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs). It addresses the two most inhibiting difficulties in fabricating practical long-wavelength VCSELs: 1) Use of oxidized layers in the bottom mirror results in a mirror thickness reduction from ~7um to
