  1. III-nitride 1.5 Micron Photonic Devices on Si Substrates

    SBC: III-N Technology, Inc            Topic: A10AT015

    Research in silicon photonics has received much attention in recent years for its potential to utilize well developed silicon processing technology. A broad range of linear and nonlinear silicon photonic devices such as modulators, splitters, switches and detectors have been demonstrated. However, the most important challenge in silicon photonics thus far is the difficulty of making electrically p ...

  2. Novel Si Nanostructure Material for Lithium-ion Battery Anode

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP5

    To obtain a noticeable improvement in the specific capacity of Li-ion battery, the conventional carbonaceous anode needs to be replaced with anodes having higher energy capacity. Si is far ahead of the other metals or metalloids in terms of high energy capacity; however, practical implementation using Si as an anode is hampered by the complete disintegration during the charge/discharge process and ...

  3. Portable, Low-Cost Approach for Identification Based on Individual Scent (IBIS)

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: A10087

    Uniquely identifying an individual based on biometric information can currently be performed by using fingerprints, facial images and eye scans. These techniques frequently require the cooperation or at a minimum the acknowledgement from an individual that information is being gathered from them. An urgent need arises for non-cooperative surreptitious biometric collection tools, which may play a ...

  4. Nanotechnology Enabled Thermal Management Materials

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: A10096

    Modern power electronics operate with greater electrical output and smaller package dimensions than ever before. This creates tremendous thermal stress on the individual components and defines stringent requirements for thermal management. Applied Nanotech, Inc. will demonstrate its CarbAl(TM) thermal management composite for power electronic substrate replacements. CarbAl(TM) is a dense compos ...

  7. Epi Ready InSb Substrate for HgCdTe Infrared Detectors by MBE


    This Phase I SBIR effort will evaluate the preparation of epi-ready 211B InSb substrate to be used as starting substrate for the growth of high quality HgCdTe epi materials. The InSb substrate will be prepared via production III-V Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) reactor. The 211B InSb substrate is chosen because it''s lattice matched to HgCdTe. Texas State University and Teledyne will assist with the ...

  8. Novel Carbon Dioxide Capture Agents for the Synthesis of Sustainable Hydrocarbon Fuels

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP6

    Advanced energy conversion and storage technology is under intense development to meet the increasing power demand by the military. Consumption of petroleum-based JP-8 fuel for propulsion and for electricity generation in battlefield places a heavy logistic burden to the Army as evidenced during the recent wars. The cost and availability of this conventional energy source is becoming an important ...

  10. Biometric-based Flame Retardant Materials for Combat Uniforms and Equipment: Coatings/Fibers Developed from Sustainable and Green Processes

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A09167

    There are currently several options for flame retardant materials for a variety of civilian and military uses, most all of these flame retardants are based on halogens and minerals that are harmful and toxic chemicals. Therefore, more environmentally friendly and non-toxic alternatives are needed as the public becomes more aware of the environmental issues facing the planet. Lynntech’s appr ...
