  1. Bragg selectors of transversal modes for high power lasers

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the novel type of mode selection for high power lasers for target tracking and interception. In Phase I, LPTI proved the concept of volume Bragg gratings (VBGs), which were recorded in photo-thermo-refractive (PTR) glass, as effective selectors of transverse modes for pulsed neodymium laser. Dramatic narrowing of angular divergence of Nd:YAG laser w ...

  3. Design and Testing of a Water Based Fire Extinguishing System for On-Board Hydrogen Peroxide Fires

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: MDA04T004

    The Air Force has demonstrated that a water is capable of extinguishing comparable H2O2 oxidizer fires with 23 pounds of water vs 67 pounds of halon. Recent advances in sensor technology make it possible to detect an H2O2 leak prior to ignition, or to rapidly detect ignition in order to initiate fire protection system water flow. Recent findings by Streamline Automation also indicate that fire e ...

  4. Develop and/or Improve Optical Coating Processes for Military Mirrors

    SBC: FLEXIAL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A space-saving, economical, collapsible alternative to rigid sunshades-and particularly a replacement for beryllium sunshades-for the protection of optical coatings and heat seeking sensors on kinetic kill vehicles and similar equipment. The bellows sunshade is a self-deploying, non-toxic, titanium, all metallic, non-outgassing cylindrical shield that can expand up to twelve times its stowed leng ...

  6. Development of 4 inch Semi-Insulating Gallium Nitride Substrates

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04T018

    High-performance GaN-based devices, such as microwave transistors, laser diodes and light emitting diodes have been demonstrated on sapphire and silicon carbide substrates. Gallium nitride substrates are expected to further improve the performance of these devices due to close lattice and thermal expansion match with GaN-based device structures. The development of a low defect density semi insulat ...

  7. Fabrication of GaN Schottky Diode Power Rectifiers on GaN Substrates Using Advanced Metal Contacts

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase II STTR will demonstrate the device operation of a GaN Schottky diode power rectifier. Kyma Technologies, Inc. will collaborate with investigators at Auburn University and North Carolina State University for materials growth/characterization and device fabrication/testing. The fabrication of a conventional Schottky diode relies on heteroepitaxy on lattice- and thermal-mismatched foreig ...

  9. Growth of large-area, single-crystalline AlN substrates (Subtopic A: Electronic Materials)

    SBC: HEXATECH            Topic: N/A

    Teh objective of the proposed work is to develop a process for the fabrication large-area aluminum nitride (AlN) wafers of up to 2" in diameter for III-nitride substrate applications. The growth process is based on a sublimation technique that utilizes adequately prepared SiC wafers as large-area seeds. A multi-step process developed in Phase I will be upscaled to larger area deposition, and will ...
