  1. High-Power Vertical-Junction Field-Effect Transistors Fabricated on Low-Dislocation-Density GaN by Epitaxial Lift-Off [Phase IIS]

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: 1

    In this program, we will develop a breakthrough technology that will enable wafer-scale epitaxial lift-off (ELO) of GaN power device heterostructures from low-dislocation-density bulk GaN substrates. This technology will be used to provide a low-cost vertical junction field effect transistors (VJFETs) with high breakdown voltage (greater than 1,200 V) and high current capability (greater than 100 ...

  2. Low Loss Polymer Optical Fiber and Components for High Speed Optical Networks

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 01b

    This DOE SBIR program would develop a manufacturing process to produce plastic optical fibers with bandwidth, bend loss and ease of installation significantly improved over currently available products. Current polymer optical fibers are manufactured using bulk polymer processing methods. These methods limit the types of fiber waveguides that may be formed, so significantly l ...

  3. An Object oriented parallel programming system with adaptive runtime

    SBC: CHARMWORKS, INC.            Topic: 02c

    High Performance Computing technology has advanced significantly, and advanced parallel computers are being built, with DOE leadership. Yet, the American engineering and manufacturing industry has not started leveraging parallel computing at a significant level, partly because of the challenging nature of modern simulation software. US competitiveness in manufacturing may suffer due to its ineffe ...

  4. Diamond membrane-based X-ray optics: Fresnel zone plates, beam stops, and grids

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: 04a

    The continuous push towards higher photon energies and higher imaging resolution has brought current state- of-theart X-ray focusing zone plates to a limit of 20 nm resolution at & lt;10 keV photon energies. Zone plates for focusing with same or better resolution at energies up to 25 keV are necessary for imaging and elemental analyses of multi-element samples, such as nano-composites, biological ...

  5. SiC for Nuclear Parts

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: 16b

    Generation IV Gas-Cooled Reactors require advanced structural materials capable of resisting extreme conditions of radiation exposure, high heat flux, corrosive environments and thermo- mechanical stresses. Metallic alloys such as stainless steel and Zircaloy used in fabricating fuel assembly grids, nozzles, strainers and spacers for generation IV Gas-Cooled Reactors, run the risk of melting when ...

  6. Real-time, continuous and quantitative detection of bioavailable radionuclides and heavy metals in contaminated water at DOE sites

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 20b

    Quantitative, real-time detection of hazardous metal ions on-site is an important goal and remains a significant challenge while monitoring sources such as potable, ground, surface and industrial waters. Quantitative analysis of trace elements is predominantly done by sending the samples to a laboratory for testing by sophisticated analytical techniques, such as Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrom ...

  7. Forensic Storage Bags for Radioactively Contaminated Samples

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: 28a

    The collection, documentation, and transportation of contaminated material are sensitive and time consuming processes. Samples collected from nuclear related incidents complicate the process further. Proper packaging of technical nuclear forensic (TNF) samples is critical to maintaining the integrity of the forensic samples and provide barriers against the radiation emitted from nuclear samples. C ...

  8. Design and fabrication of a 30T superconducting soleNoid using hyperbaric processed Bi2212 round wire

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 33b

    High field magnets are needed for frontier accelerator facilities and have many applications beyond high-energy physics. Of particular interest are 30-40T class (LTS/HTS hybrid) solenoids required for the final beam cooling stages of a muon collider facility. The successful design of such magnets using Bi2212 conductor depends critically on the conductor processing, stress management in the coil, ...

  9. Programmable, Reconfigurable Silicon Photodiode Array Module

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34c

    Many planned nextgeneration experiments in high energy physics, astroparticle physics, and nuclear physics need a plethora of photon detectors with singlephoton sensitivity, large dynamic range, and accessibility throughout experiment lifetime. These requirements constrain the sensor: low sensitivity against temperature and bias fluctuations; very compact; very robust; cheap; insensitive to magn ...

  10. Radiation-hard Miniature Parallel Optical Links for Next Generation High-Energy Physics Experiments

    SBC: VEGA WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 35d

    Future particle physics experiments at the high-energy frontier, such as LHC, HL-LHC, ILC, CLIC or Multi-TeV Muon Collider, will all require silicon detectors capable of reconstructing charged particle trajectories with high accuracy in the presence of significant high occupancy. These experiments will impose stringent demands on the data links to transfer the data from the silicon detector to t ...
