  3. Novel Polishing and Reactor Technologies for SiC Epitaxial Growth

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Commercially viable silicon carbide device manufacturing processes depend on an ability to grow'low defect density epitaxial layers. Low defect density epitaxial layers start with pristine SiC substrate surfaces. Epi-ready pristine SiC surfaces are not commercially available. The results of this-programme should remedy this. In Phase I we will demonstrate a cost-effective, reproducible ex-situ sur ...

  4. Vandium Precursors for Semi-Insulating SiC Epilayers

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Silicon carbide (SiC) is an ideal semiconductor material for high temperature, high frequency, and high power electronic devices. A SiC technology analogous to silicon - on -insulator (SOI) will be feasible if a suitable dopant precursor and epitaxial growth technique to produce semi-insulating SiC can be developed. Vanadium is an attractive dopant for the formation of semi-insulating SiC. In Phas ...

  5. Radiation hard, nonvolatile, NRDO memory elements

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Metal-ferroelectric-semiconductor field effect transistors (MFS-FETs) have a can be used as nonvolatile memory devices. The primary ferroelectric materials for these devices are perovskite oxides such as lead zirconium titanate (PZT) and strontium bismuth tantalate (SBT). These materials contain highly mobile elements (Pb and Bi) that can interact with silicon at process temperatures and lead to a ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Electroluminescent Nanocrystal/Quantum Dot Based Phosphors

    SBC: E-LITE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal aims to develop quantum-dot based nanophosphors, using cladded and doped nanocrystals. These high-efficiency and fast response (nanoseconds) phosphors will be utilized in Phase II for the fabrication of full color, flexible, flat panel displays and illuminators, utilizing self-assembly techniques. Doped nanocrystals have demonstrated enhanced photolurninescence (e.g. quantum efficie ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
