  1. High-Output, Monodispersed Aerosol Particle Generation Using Microfabricated Nozzle Arrays

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Aerosol generation is an important leading edge technology with relevance to ballistic missile defense because of the importance of bioearosol generation technology in the development of countermeasures for defence against biological warfare. Aerosol delivery is also an important route for the transmission of naturally occurring particulate materials. The development of new technology for the effi ...

  2. Sputter Synthesis of Bulk Aluminum Nitride

    SBC: Carolina Sputter Solutions            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will demonstrate the feasibility of using a novel physical vapor deposition (PVD) technique for bulk growth of aluminum nitride(AlN). We have developed a sputter source which demonstrates the high growth rates needed for growing bulk aluminum nitride. In comparison with other bulk growth processes this novel PVD process has the advantages of a controlled processing environmen ...

  4. Preparation of Aluminum Nitride Substrates for Device Fabrication

    SBC: Crystal IS, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to prepare AlN substrates from single-crystal boules of AlN. When properly prepared, these AlN substrates should be superior to all substrates currently available commercially. In particular, the AlN substrates have significantly superior chemical compatibility, lattice/crystal structure match, thermal expansion match, and thermal conductivity when compared to sapphire substrates that ...

  5. Sensors (Microwave)

    SBC: Data Fusion Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Data Fusion Corporation (DFC) and Technology Service Corporation (TSC) propose to develop a novel, cost-effective solution to building radar systems. This system uses multiple cheaper, lower-PRF transmitters to create the equivalent of a more expensive higher-PRF system. In addition to achieving the cost advantages of not requiring the more expensive Gridded Traveling Wave Tubes (GTWTs) to achieve ...

  6. Novel Fabrication of High-Resolution Microdisplay Panels

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Correlations and convolutions are fundamental tools of signal and image processing. Applications include object recognition, automatic tracking and guidance, machine vision for automated manufacturing processes, autonomous vehicles, and general purpose image processing such as searching and analyzing graphical data bases. Optical systems can perform these operations enormously faster than electron ...

  7. A Robust Miniature, Multi-function, Dense WDM Demultiplexer/Receiver


    This effort may be viewed as attempting to find the lowest technology, and thus, first commercializable use of meso-optics devices. These devices exploit wavelength-scale complex geometries and precision fabrication techniques to achieve their functionality. One of the conceptually simplest and most powerful devices is a high-resolution WDM demultiplexer. This proposal intends to extend research r ...

  8. Adaptive, High Performance Wireless Multiwavelength, Hybrid Terrestrial Laser Communication Network


    Eagle Optoelectronics, LLC proposes to develop a wireless terrestrial laser communi-cation network for eyesafe operation in the 1.5 um wavelength range. The system uses an innovative low cost double-cladding Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) technology which is currently under development at the Naval Research Laboratory. Because of the operation in the 1.5 um wavelength band, the wireless part ...
