  2. Ultrahigh Quality GaN Films

    SBC: Silver Sky Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of chemical beam epitaxy to grow ultrahigh quality GaN thin films will be developed. This process will allow the growth of GaN on high thermal conductivity substrates and enable the fabrication of precision superlattice structures. GaN will be grown using Ga effusion cells and ammonia-in an ultrahigh vacuum environment. This growth rate will be in the 1 micron per hour range at tem ...

  3. Broadband Front Ends for Radar & Digital Receivers

    SBC: THESUS LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Theseus Logic/SUNY-Stony Brook team is proposing to develop, demonstrate and commercialize Rapid Single Flux Quantum (RSFQ) circuit designed using NULL Convention Logic (NCL). Phase I of this program will demonstrate, by simulation and modeling, the feasibility of implementing logic gate structures in RSFQ technology which can exploi the effective delay insensitivity of NCL. In Phase II the te ...

  5. Strategic Monitoring of Spacecraft Mechanical Parts Assemblies

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: MDA04T022

    Lubrication problems in rolling element bearings are the leading cause of failure in spacecraft momentum/reaction wheels, control moment gyros, gimbals, and similar applications. Condition monitoring technologies developed for terrestrial or aircraft applications are not adequate due to unique spacecraft conditions and the need to prevent rather than just detect damage. Sentient Corporation, in co ...

  6. Large Area Si Substrates for InP Based Electronics and Optical Device Manufacturing

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: BMDO02T00

    InP-based devices have applications encompassing the entire communication technology including wireless and fiber-optic telecommunications. It is especially suitable for very high frequency (up to 200GHz) operation. Therefore they are increasingly a critical component in all military missions. Their manufacturing costs are high in large part due the high cost of InP substrates, and their much smal ...

  7. Low Pressure Source for Mass-Selective, Diffusion Assisted Epitaxy

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF02T005

    Epitaxial growth of non-equilibrium thin-film structures, which have high quality and abrupt interfaces, is still the main challenge that limits many material systems for applications in semiconductor devices. In this STTR Phase II program, SVT Associates (SVTA) in collaboration with the University of Minnesota (UMN) will develop a new RF plasma light-mass ion source, compatible with the low-pres ...

  9. Low-Noise Avalanche Photodiodes for Mid-IR Applications

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF04T021

    Avalanche photodiodes (APDs) are the detector of choice for low noise, high speed, high sensitivity photodetectors. Applications in the mid-IR (3-5 micron) include optical trace gas detection, LADAR, quantum cryptography and targeting countermeasures. Currently there are no commercially available APDs operating in this wavelength range. To address this need, this Phase I program will investigat ...

  10. Development of III-V Terahertz Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF03T024

    The purpose of this Phase I study is to develop quantum cascade laser (QCL) with terahertz (THz) emission. Terahertz photons have energies which lie in the regime between optical photons and high frequency radio waves and have many important commercial and military applications. In the QCL, quantum wells (QWs) and injection layers are grown in a III-V semiconductor superlattice. The QWs and barr ...
