  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  2. Massively Parallel High Temperature Probe System for Wafer-level Reliability Testing

    SBC: Celadon Systems Inc.            Topic: 910021R

    Historical methods of reliability assessment are less and less effective as device sizes shrink. Larger sample sizes and longer duration tests are increasingly needed. At the same time, efforts to continue scaling semiconductors to ever smaller geometries is leading to an explosion of new device structures, materials and processes. The cost of testing these innovations is becoming a major barrier ...

  6. Ultra Light Weight and Compact, Flexible Nano-Photonic Mach-Zehnder Interference (MZI) Modulators Based on the combination of Electro-Optic Polymer Na

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT14

    ABSTRACT: In this program, Omega Optics, Inc., in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin, propose to integrate the unique advantages of combining silicon nanomembranes (SiNMs) and electro-optic (EO) polymer nanomembranes in developing a novel low power, high frequency modulator on a flexible substrate. A four order magnitude increase in the electro-optic effect compared to conventio ...

  8. A Novel High Efficiency Thermal-Electrochemical Device for Hybrid PV/T Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: Energy issues have been at the center of the national security debate and as the largest single consumer of energy in the United States, the DOD recognizes the need to reduce its reliance on fossil fuel. For a number of years, the department has been making steady progress at decreasing its fossil fuel footprint which has seen solar energy and the use of photovoltaic cells emerge as a ...

  9. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Omm Scientific, Inc            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: New energetic materials are needed for use in explosives and propellants that have a very powerful energy release yet are insensitive to handling. Safer materials that also allow development of lighter weight, longer range missiles and higher performance explosives are needed. One class of such compounds is materials based on furazan heterocycles. While some furazans are too energeti ...

  10. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...
