  1. Vertical GaN Substrates

    SBC: Sixpoint Materials, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0000941

    SixPoint Materials will create low-cost, high-quality vertical gallium nitride (GaN) substrates using a multi-phase production approach that employs both hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) technology and ammonothermal growth techniques to lower costs and maintain crystal quality. Substrates are thin wafers of semiconducting material needed for power devices. In its two-phase project, SixPoint Mate ...

  2. Epitaxial GaN on flexible metal tapes for low-cost transistor devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 1

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...

  3. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  5. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: Eureka Aerospace            Topic: A14AT004

    This proposal addresses the problem of PCSS/laser trigger integration using a single monolithic laser diode array, thus simplifying the entire optical delivery network necessary for efficient operation of PCSSs. The proposal constitutes a logical continuation of Phase I effort where the main focus was on the detailed design of the PCSS/laser diode array (LDA) integrated architecture. In Phase II ...

  6. A universal framework for non-deteriorating time-domain numerical algorithms in Maxwell's electrodynamics

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: A13AT008

    The project will remove a key difficulty that currently hampers many existing methods for computing unsteady electromagnetic waves on unbounded regions. Numerical accuracy and/or stability may deteriorate over long times due to the treatment of artificial outer boundaries. We propose to develop a universal algorithm and software that will correct this problem by employing the Huygens' principle an ...

  7. Chemical Analyzer System for In Situ and Real Time Surface Monitoring for Composition Control During Synthesis of Compound Semiconductor Films

    SBC: Staib Instruments, Inc.            Topic: A13AT011

    The area of thin film growth has progressed rapidly, producing many high performance new materials which require accuracy of their atomic composition to perform as expected. Any method to provide real time in situ information about the elemental composition of the growing surface is highly valuable for these new, complicated materials. Utilizing a new instrument design, the Phase I project team ...

  8. Oriented Enzymatic Electrodes with Enhanced Charge Transfer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A12aT011

    Our objective is to significantly increase the electron transfer efficiency of the enzyme-catalyzed reactions at electrodes and thereby establish a new state-of-the-art power source for military and commercial systems. The approach is to develop a novel method for orienting enzymes immobilized onto the electrode surface that results in facilitated charge transfer. The proposed bio-electrode techn ...

  9. Advanced Wavelength Tuners for Chem-Bio Detection Lasers

    SBC: LFK Technology Corp.            Topic: A11aT024

    Several laser types are in development by the government for advanced proximal sensors, including the quantum cascade laser, the miniature solid state laser with optical parametric oscillator and the miniature CO2 gas laser. The enabling critical component for all these advanced transmitters is the compact, robust, rapid, precision wavelength selector. It is proposed to develop and deliver a sta ...

  10. Micromachined Probes for Measurement and Characterization of Terahertz Materials and Devices

    SBC: DOMINION MICROPROBES, INC.            Topic: A12aT022

    The objective of this phase II STTR program is twofold: (1) to design, prototype, and commercialize differential on-wafer probes for characterizing devices in the 140220 GHz and 220320 GHz bands, and (2) to engineer the geometry and material of the micromachined probe tip to enable robust, consistent, and low-resistance electrical contact to devices with various contact pad metallizations, includi ...
