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

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            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 ...

  3. Soy-Capped Polycarbonate Dendrimers for Tough, Sustainable Water-Based Wood Coatings

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: B

    The environmental impact of wood coatings has become a pressing issue as the manufacturing of wooden products such as flooring, cabinetry, furniture and doors moves back to the United States amidst rising labor costs overseas. For 30 years, the bulk of these products have been painted in countries with lax environmental regulations, allowing the use of inexpensive but environmentally hazardous oil ...

  4. Low Cost, Efficient Microchannel Plasma Ozone System for Point of Use Water Treatment

    SBC: EP Purification, Inc.            Topic: A

    A team at EP Purification has performed research for the development and commercialization of low-cost microchannel plasma reactor modules capable of efficiently producing ozone for water treatment and other environmental applications in a slim form factor and size. The conservation of water resources for human consumption is a growing national priority. Ozone is a unique purification agent as it ...

  5. Handheld microfluidic device for cyanobacteria toxin detection and monitoring

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    There are approximately 7,000 flares in operation at industrial facilities across the United States. Flares are one of the largest volatile organic compounds (VOC) and air toxics emission sources. Based on a special emission inventory required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in 2007, highly reactive VOC emissions from 28 flares located in Harris County, Texas were 1469.5 tons in a ...

  6. Development of a Cost-effective, Nutrient-removal, Onsite Household Wastewater Treatment System for Environmentally Fragile Areas

    SBC: CLEW            Topic: A

    Coastal communities have witnessed their ecosystems change over the past 25 years due to nitrogen loading and phosphate pollution from high-population density and no access to centralized sewage systems. Some effects have been eutrophication, algal blooms, fish dying and, most notably, consequences for local development and real estate.CLEW provides an inexpensive, efficient and an environmentally ...

  7. Environmental Sensing System Enhanced With Nested Concentrating Electrodes (ESSENCE) for Safe and Sustainable Water Resources

    SBC: BIOPICO SYSTEMS Inc.            Topic: A

    Water quality is critical for human health and habitation, so a timely identification of pathogens is necessary to avoid severe infections and ensure safe and sustainable water resources. Most of the existing microorganism concentration methods are based on filtration using size or charge membranes, and a generic membrane-filtration method with the ability to simultaneously concentrate all microor ...

  8. Innovative Filters Using Nanomaterials for Removal of Gaseous Pollutants and Particulates from Contaminated Air Streams

    SBC: ETSVP-JV, LLC            Topic: D

    A uniquely qualified team consisting of ETSVP-JV, a small business joint venture, and subcontractor RTI International, brings together all of the skills and experience needed for the development and testing of innovative nanomaterial filters. For this Phase I SBIR project, we propose to develop a dual-stage nanoporous filter media for controlling PM2.5 and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Materi ...

  9. ECAR- Electrochemical Arsenic Remediation for Affordable Water Security in America

    SBC: SimpleWater            Topic: F

    Arsenic contamination in public drinking water affects as many as 56 million Americans across 25 reporting states, disproportionately threatening low-income communities and private well owners, including those near shale gas deposits undergoing production by hydraulic fracturing. Many of these arsenic-prone communities rely on expensive energy and chemical-intensive processes, such as reverse osmo ...

  10. Software Framework for Enabling Innovation in Behavior-based Energy Conservation in Commercial Buildings

    SBC: Lucid Design Group, Inc.            Topic: F

    According to the Department of Energy, the built environment represents more than 70 percent of U.S. electrical load and 38 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. Electricity used by lighting, water heating, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) are projected to remain relatively flat by 2030, but miscellaneous electric loads (MELs) are projected to increase dramatically, from 18 perc ...
