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

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Dramatic differences in the diffusivities of the constituents of novel thin film materials and structures limit material perfection under far from equilibrium growth conditions. We will develop a new light-mass ion source, compatible with the low pressurerequirements of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), to provide selective enhancement of the motion of surface atoms. Helium or hydrogen ions incident ...

  7. Photonic Crystal Chip-scale Optical Networks

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    As the clock speeds of integrated circuits continue to increase, the technological limits of all-electrical interconnects are becoming the overwhelming limit to system performance. In particular, over 80% of the latency in current ICs is due tointerconnect limitations. Moreover, current processors are requiring operational powers in excess of 100 Watts with I/O, on-chip interconnections, and clo ...

  8. Photonic Band Gap Devices for Commercial Applications

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF02T017

    Advances in fabrication technology have made it possible to prodce features that are smaller than the wavelength of light. As such a new class of optical devices based on submicron periodic structures has emerged and is referred to as photonic crystals (PhC) or photonic band gap devices (PBGs). Preliminary research indicates that these devices will be capable of performing a wide variety of functi ...

  9. 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 ...
