  1. Lightweight hardware design for regenerative fuel cells

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: MDA03100

    Practical use of a RFC for solar powered winged aircraft and lighter-than-air craft has been limited due to weight constraints and the paucity of test data from and practical experience with closed loop RFC hardware. The lightweight cells and endplates developed in Phase I of this program will be applied to the practical implementation of a closed-loop regenerative fuel cell. This RFC will build ...

  3. Advanced Gallium Nitride Microelectronic Devices Produced on Gallium Nitride Substrates

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA02047

    Kyma Technologies, Inc. will demonstrate high-performance gallium nitride (GaN) microelectronic devices for X-band radar applications using single crystal semi-insulating GaN substrates. FETs for power amplifiers will benefit from lower defects resulting from growth on a native GaN substrate. The thermal conductivity of the GaN substrates will be characterized and device structures will be modeled ...

  4. Advanced Manufacturing Process for Growth of Gallium Nitride Crystals

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA02021b

    Gallium nitride substrates are now being produced by several manufacturers, however significant market penetration is being limited by high prices and low quantities. This Phase II program is aimed at addressing both of these issues by developing a growth process for the production of 1cm thick boules at a growth rate of 1mm per hour. The Phase I program met and exceeded the goals of demonstrati ...

  5. High-Average-Power Cryogenically-Cooled Diode-Pumped Yb:YAG Laser

    SBC: LE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: BMDO97016

    Department of Defense (DOD) interset in developing laser weaponary in the 1960's. Solid-State lasers have been a canidate technology from the earliest time, but for various reasons, this technology has not been developed to a point where they are scalable to high average power lasers. The development of diode laser pump arrays has improved efficiency, but at a considerable increase in systems cost ...

  6. Fully Integrated, Multiport, Planar-Waveguide Spectral Comparators and Multiplexers Based on Lithographic Holography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: BMDO02011

    Photonic devices providing high performance spectral filtering, multiplexing, optical waveform processing, and signal routing will be designed, fabricated, and characterized. The devices are based on photolithographic scribing of holographic structures onto the surface of planar waveguides and operate on intra-guide signals. The holographic structures provide a manufacturable approach to 2D phot ...

  7. High toughness reaction bonded composites

    SBC: M CUBED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04041

    M Cubed manufactures many commercial components out of reaction bonded SiC and B4C on a large scale. The key advantages of these materials are high specific stiffness (high modulus and low density) and high thermal stability (high thermal conductivity and low CTE). However, these materials have limited toughness precluding their use in many potential applications including some missile defense com ...
