  1. Three-Dimensional Electromagnetic Modeling and Simulation of MMICs and Interconnects in Microwave Packages

    SBC: ANSOFT CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A methodology is proposed for introducing the capability of modeling active MMICs into the industry-standard three dimensional electromagnetic field simulator High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) and Maxwell SI Eminence. The first objective of the proposed work is to evaluate the existing capabilities of HFSS/Eminence for characterizing the passive three dimensional interconnect problems as ...

  2. A GaN-A1GaN CCD for UV Imaging Applications

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a unique GaN-Al(sub x)Ga(sub 1-x)N heterojunction based CCD for imaging in the ultraviolet (wavelengths less than 365 nm). Our proposed device will be solid state, TTL compatible and in it's final configuration solar blind. The Phase I program is aimed at establishing the technical feasibility of our device concept. Our proposed CCD is in essence a GaN-AlGaN gated photoconductor with ...

  3. HEMT and HBT Process Design

    SBC: Gateway Modeling, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This effort will address five problems in the process design of heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) and high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs): (1) HEMT thermal impedances will be measured using a novel method and will be compared with finite-element simulations to provide more accurate values for computer-aided design programs. (2) The role of the spacer layer in HEMT performance and ...

  4. Enhancing the Accuracy and Utility of Performance Measurement in the AF

    SBC: Personnel Decisions Research            Topic: N/A

    Final course grades in military technical schools are frequently used as the criterion in assessing the validity of a variety of cognitive, perceptual, and psychomotor ability tests. PDRI proposes an innovative approach to criterion development for use by AF researchers. During the proposed Phase I SBIR effort, we plan to begin development of two sets of criterion measures. The first set will b ...

  5. Smart Linear Motion Oven (LIMO) for Precision Group III Beam Flux Control in MBE


    Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) is a key fabrication technology for high performance III-V and other semiconductor devices of importance to many DoD and commercial applications. A variable group III element source flux would provide agile vertical layer composition control required for sophisticated device fabrication. One recent source concept, Linear Motion Oven or LIMO, appears especially promisi ...

  7. Reactor Technology for Aqueous Phase Catalytic Oxidation of Organics

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    An investigation of the efficacy of low temperature aqueous phase catalytic oxidation for the destruction of organic water pollutants of significance to the U.S. Armed Forces is proposed. It has been shown in our laboratory that organic contaminants can be mineralized in the aqueous phase using dioxygen over noble metal catalysts at temperatures between 120-160C. Work to date has been an outgrow ...

  8. The Xinotech Metalanguage-Based Object Abstraction Environment for FORTRAN to Ada 9X Translation

    SBC: Xinotech Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Xinotech has researched and developed a metalanguage-based, multi-lingual, interactive programming and transformation environment, commercially available for Ada, CMS-2, Modula-2 and COBOL, for CMS-2 to Ada translation, and for Ada restructuring and modernization. The language-independent architecture is supported by XML, the Xinotech Meta-Language, and XPAL, the Xinotech Pattern Abstraction Meta ...

    SBC: Strainoptic Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed research is to develop a multi-axial balance, based on measurement of bulk-birefringence that develops in selected structural members as result of forces and moments applied. The proposed concept will make possible a balance design that is inherently more rigid, since it operates at a considerably lower stress level than existing strain-gage transducers. As a result, ...

  10. Active, Adaptive Resonant Tuned Mass Systems for Space Applications


    We propose to build upon prior experience to develop hardware customized to a selected spacecraft application. This hardware would employ an adaptive mechanical resonance as a vibration control element. Two related uses of such a device are described; the tuned vibration absorber and the tuned mass damper. Hood Technology Corporation has built and tested such devices for other applications. We ...
