  1. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (<23 pF), and high bandwidth (>125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise ...

  2. Radiation Fault Analysis for 45 Nanometer CMOS-SOI VLSI Circuits

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA092001

    State of the art Radiation Hardened by Design (RHBD) techniques must scale down in feature size for radiation effects in 45 nm processes, and also scale up in complexity to support radiation fault analysis of VLSI circuits. Recent access to commercial 45 nm CMOS Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technologies has increased the interest in this technology for rad-hard electronic applications due to the in ...

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Novel UV Photocatalytic Process for Removing MTBE from Water

    SBC: Puralytics            Topic: BC

    This SBIR project will develop a novel reactor design for UV/TiO2 photocatalysis. Specifically, the degradation of MTBE will be investigated and the project will then look at byproduct formation. Additionally, optimizing the system by adding oxygen as an electron acceptor and H2O2 as an alternative method for degrading MTBE will be explored. The broader/commercial impact of this project will be ...
