  1. Development of a Truly Lattice-Matched III-Nitride Technology for

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cermet, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to implement a lattice matched III-Nitride technology using existing substrates. The implementation of a lattice matched substrate promises to produce near dislocationfree III-Nitrides for the first time while the use of an existing substrate technology dramatically lowers development cost and reduces the devel ...

  2. ZnO Based Integrated Photonics

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "ZnO is an excellent candidate for the growing field of nanophotonics due to its index of refraction, availability of native substrates, and the possibility of light emission. These properties make ZnO an ideal candidate on this growing field. Phase Iwork will concentrate in designing and characterizing waveguides, which will be the interconnects of future ZnO based devices built homoepitaxiall ...

  3. Development of Lattice-Matched AlInN MBE Technology for UV Emitters and High Frequency Electronic Applications

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Cermet, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, propose to implement a lattice matched AlInN using existing substrate technology. The implementation of a lattice matched substrate promises to produce near dislocation freeAlInN heterojunction for the first time while the use of an existing substrate technology dramatically lowers development cost and reduces the devel ...

  4. Growth of AlN Crystals

    SBC: HEXATECH            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of growing centimeter-size aluminum nitride (AlN) crystals by subliming polycrystalline AlN in nitrogen atmosphere, and to demonstrate single crystalline quality meeting or exceeding thestandards of commercially available SiC wafers. The growth process, which utilizes high temperature, subatmospheric pressure and a steep temperature ...

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

    SBC: HEXATECH            Topic: N/A

    "The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of large-area aluminum nitride (AlN) wafers for III-nitride substrate applications. The growth strategy consists of growing single crystalline AlN on adequately prepared SiC templates using asublimation process. We propose to employ a multi-step deposition process to (1) avoid SiC decomposition, (2) prepare the SiC seed surface for ...

  6. Process for volume production of GaN substrates (Subtopic A: Electronic Materials)

    SBC: HEXATECH            Topic: N/A

    "The objective of proposed research is to develop a commercially viable process for ammonothermal growth of gallium nitride (GaN) crystals suitable for fabrication of GaN wafers. The ammonothermal crystal growth method is modeled after the very successfulprocess of synthesizing alpha-quartz in supercritical water. In this process, a mineralizer attacks bulk nutrient to generate anions that are sol ...

  7. New Broad Band Rare-Earth-Doped Glasses For Optical Fiber Communications

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Kigre has an idea and evidence for a new family of broadband glasses that break all of Zachariasen's standard accepted rules for glass formation. This family of glasses is based upon the extensive use of multiple glass formers such as SiO2, B2O3, La2O3and P2O5. By employing multiple glass formers in a laser glass, Kigre is able to expand the bandwidth without sacrificing cross section and gain. ...

  8. New Rare-Earth-Doped Glass Fiber Lasers and Amplifiers for 1.54 um Communications

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Kigre's Phase I fiber amplifier development effort demonstrated 10dB of internal gain at 1.54um from 2.2 cm long section of MM-2 erbium ytterbium phosphate fiber amplifier pumped at 980nm. 26dB of gain was also produced from a 8.8com long section of thissame fiber pumped at 1480nm. Mode field image testing of a fiber show this MM-2 fiber to be perfect 1.54um single mode containment match to stan ...

  9. Ohmic Contacts to Bulk N-type Gallium Nitride

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

    "Kyma Technologies and NCSU will collaborate to produce ohmic contacts to single crystal gallium nitride (GaN) substrates. We propose to develop metallization schemes for ohmic contacts to GaN substrates for device fabrication. This will be of the utmostimportance for producing devices with a vertical device structure on a native gallium nitride substrate. Gallium nitride devices produced on sa ...

  10. Epitaxial Thermochromic Thin Films for Optical Modulator Applications via CCVD

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    "The continued proliferation of imaging infrared (IR) missile systems has created the need for fully representative IR scene generators. In order to test these imaging IR systems correctly, a very large dynamic range is required of the scene generator. Thiscan not easily be produced by the standard approach of an array of suspended resistor heater elements. IR optical modulators based on thermal s ...
