  1. Rectifying Junctions for High Temperature, High Power Electronics

    SBC: 3c Semiconductors            Topic: N/A

    The single most important type of metal/SiC junction is the n-type, rectifying Schottky diode, because it is the voltage blocking junction in all majority carrier devices. A reliable junction of this type for n-type SiC is the key to its development for high temperature, power conditioning electronics. Phase I will demonstrate that osmium is the ideal metal for forming such junctions. Phase II wil ...

  2. High-Speed Adaptive Optimal Associative Memory

    SBC: Cyber Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cyber Dynamics, Inc. (CDI), proposes to develop a software implementation of the theoretically fastest adaptive process for Optimal Associative Memory (OAM). This algorithm provides orders of magnitude improvement over all conventional neural network paradigms in the areas of response recall accuracy, information storage capacity and density, immunity to noise, generalization characteristics, and ...

  3. Capacitance-Free Integrated Circuit Interconnects

    SBC: Integrated Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A compact high speed logic gate is proposed that will switch with a speed under 10 psecs with a power-time product of less than 7 fJ. The electrical power should be less than 1 mA at 1.5 Volts. Unlike all-electronic logic, this opto-electronic logic gate's speed and power will remain fast and low, even when incorporated in large integrated optical circuits with thousands of external connections. ...

  4. A Magnetostrictive Actuated, Multi-Function Xenon Gas Valve

    SBC: Marotta Controls, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Marotta Scientific Controls, Inc. has conceived a new, multi-function Xenon gas control valve concept for isolation, pressure regulation and flow control. Xenon gas propellant is used at very low flow rates in several types of next-generation electric thrusters, including the Russian Stationary Plasma Thrusters. The Multi-function control valve uses a magnetostrictive actuator. This new actuation ...

  5. Production of High Purity Nanoparticles by Laser Assisted Molecular Beam Deposition (LAMBD)

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Nanostructured powders, with particle size in the 1 - 10 nm range, have shown great promise in the forming of advanced structural and functional materials for applications as tribological coatings, high surface area catalyst supports for cutting tools, thermal barrier coatings, capacitor and battery materials, dielectric and optoelectronic materials. Two problems are frequently encountered in the ...

  6. Combustion Flame Deposition of ITO Films

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We are developing an inexpensive and versatile 'vapor phase deposition' process for deposition of high quality dense oxide films on supporting substrates. For example, fully dense Si02 films on quartz substrates have been deposited at rates as high as 10 microns/min at

  7. Array Interferometer for Real-Time IR Sensing


    Current FT-IR spectrometers are based upon the original Michelson design containing a moving mirror, which was first proposed nearly 70 years ago. While spectrometers based on this principle have been very useful, development of a new generation of spectrometers with no moving parts would bring major advances for numerous sensing applications. It could enable real-time measurement, reduced positio ...

  8. High Temperature, High Power Fast Plasma Switch

    SBC: Pxl, Inc.orporated            Topic: N/A

    We will demonstrate ultrafast, high power switching technology capable of operating within high temperature environments {> 300 C). The technology is based on generation of Continuous Extension Laser Spark (CELS) by Besselian laser beam. These switches are capable of ultrafast switching GW peak power electrical pulses within high temperature environments, operate with subnanosecond delay, rise tim ...

  9. Innovative Surface Modifications to Promote Wear Resistance

    SBC: Procedyne Corp            Topic: N/A

    Nitrided and/or carburized surface cases on light metals such as aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and their alloys, economically formed, would allow significant weight reduction in equipment from a simple machine to an advanced engine. Such cased material could replace steel gears, crankshafts, pinions, and other parts requiring wear resistance. The net result would be more fuel efficient, less cost ...

  10. Super High Brightness Cold Cathode Field Emitter

    SBC: Skion Corp.            Topic: N/A

    SKION has found the cesiated amorphous diamond/Si structure which demonstrated the 7-10 V/micron turn-on voltage on planar geometry. Negative electron affinity property of the diamond surface had been reported previously. However, this exceptional super-high brightness electron emission behavior is believed to be a new mechanism due to the composite structure of cesium, oxygen and carbon. The high ...
