  1. Multicolor UV Seeker Based on GaN/GaAs Heterostructures

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    APA Optics will develop a monolithic UV seeker for use in flame sensing and passive or tactical threat warning systems. The key to the technical approach is the deposition of high optical/electrical quality Al(x)Ga(1-x)N over GaAs substrates and using it to fabricate back to back Schottky barrier detectors. Al(x)Ga(1-x)N is a compound III/V semiconductor system with a bandgap tunable from 220 to 3 ...

  2. Growth of Bulk Single Crystal A1N Substrates for A1GaN Epitaxy

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a six month Phase I program to demonstrate the feasibility of growing A1N single crystals to serve as substrates for subsequent A1xGa1xN epitaxy. Our approach is to use a low pressure, high temperature (>>2000oC) furnace with a temperature gradient between the A1N charge and the deposition (seed) regions. Our approach is based on several innovations. These include the use of single prec ...

  3. GaN/AlN Based High Voltage Heterostructure Transistor

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High voltage semiconductor devices have found important applications in the areas of high power generation, power control, power conversion, surge protection, and industrial electronics. However, GaAs or Si based high voltage device are limited by a relatively low intrinsic breakdown voltage and,therefore, inherently suited for high power applications. We propose to develop novel high voltage hete ...

  4. Development of Compliant Substrates for GaN Epitaxy

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a six month Phase I research program aimed at developing compliant substrates for the epitaxy of GaN and AlGaN films. We present two alternate approaches one with silicon and the other with GaAs as the starting substrate material and a unique multilayer structure to be deposited using low pressure MOCVD. We propose to investigate an approach based on the use of SIMOX substrates. These c ...

  6. Reconfigurable Broadband ISDN Access Platform


    As interest in the National Information Infrastructure continues to gain momentum, telephone, and cable-television service providers continue to work on ways for increasing data bandwidth into the home and office. The service providers' goal is to provide sufficient bandwidth to support both existing services and novel applications such as on-demand video. For economic reasons, service providers ...

  7. High Power, Sub-Nanosecond Laser Diode Driver

    SBC: Aria Corp            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a new approach to laser diode drivers which combines the unique advantages of three key technologies. The innovative approach will extend the performance capabilities of laser diode systems to greater than 200 A peak pulse current, less than one nanosecond rise time, at greater than 10 KHz repetition rates. Not customarily used in laser diode drivers, the unique combinati ...

  8. Bioerodible Polymeric Microcapsules for Vaccine Delivery

    SBC: SURMODICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Immunization has proven to be an effective method of protecting both military and cibilian populations from disease caused by bacterial, viral, or toxic agents. The U.S. military faces the problem of protecting its personnel from incapacitation caused by exposure to agents of both natural and man-made orgin. In developing countries, immunization is the most cost-effective weapon for disease prev ...

  9. Low Cost, Dual Use Envirnmental Measurement Device (END)- Phase I

    SBC: Event Tracking Service            Topic: N/A

    Event Tracking Service (ETS) proposes to study the feasibility of developing a low cost ($50), self-contained, dual use, miniature, credit card size Environmental Measurement Device (EMD) to sense and log shock, vibration, temperature, and humidity. The device would be readily expandable to monitor other parameters. Our low power architecture includes 3V off-the-shelf CMOS electronics, a low power ...
