  4. TRANSPARENT ELECTRODE VERTICAL CAVITY SURFACE EMITTING LASERMODULES FOR OPTICAL COMMUNICATION & SIGNAL PROCESSING APPLICATIONS.

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH SPEED OPTICAL LINKS ARE FINDING EVER INCREASING USES INOPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS AND SIGNAL PROCESSING APPLICATIONS. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE PLANAR WAVEGUIDE LASERS USED IN THESE LINKS SUFFER FROM A HIGH INSERTION LOSS DUE TO A MODE MISMATCH BETWEEN THE FIBER AND THE MODULATOR AND THE INABILITY TO IMPLEMENT A 2D ARRAY CONFIGURATIONS. THE VERTICAL CAVITY SURFACE EMITTING LASERS (VCSEL) CURRENTLY UNDE ...

  7. AlxGa(1-x)N High Electron Mobility Transistors for High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    GaN high electron mobility transistors or HEMTs are proposed for use as high temperature electronic devices. HEMTs are excellent for both power and low noise amplification since they posses a high carrier concentration and an enhanced carrier mobility. GaN has a large bandgap of 3.2 a, which gives it a greater breakdown voltage and a higher saturated electron velocity than GaAs. GaN, in addition, ...

  8. ATOMIC LAYER EPITAXY OF BORON NITRIDE

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE A PHASE I RESEARCH PROGRAM AIMED AT DEPOSITING SINGLE CRYSTAL BN FILMS OVER SAPPHIRE AND SILICON CARBIDE SUBSTRATES. OUR PLAN IS TO EMPLOY A UNIQUE PHOTO-ASSISTED SWITCHED ATOMIC LAYER EPITAXY PROCESS. THIS WE FEEL WILL REDUCE THE SINGLE CRYSTAL EPITAXY TEMPERATURE VALUES CLOSE TO 1400C. WE ALSO PROPOSE TO USE A UNIQUE MULTILAYER BUFFERING PROCEDURE TO DECREASE THE INTERFACE DEFECTS RES ...

  9. GaAs/GaN Strained Layer Superlattice Material for High Temperature Transistors

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electronic devices which operate at high temperatures could be used in many military and commercial systems. GaAs and Si based devices cannot operate at these temperatures and require cooling. Wide bandgap material such as diamond, SiC and GaN have greater breakdown voltages, higher operating temperatures, and higher saturated electron velocities than either GaAs or Si. However, these material sys ...
