  2. AlInN/GaN HFET over Free-Standing bulk GaN substrates

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA09T001

    This proposed research for Phase II consideration involves the growth of AlInN/GaN heterostructure field effect transistors (HFET) on bulk GaN substrates. By combining a homoepitaxial substrate for the growth of the heterostructures with the lattice-matching ability of the AlInN alloy, it is expected that the defect density in the eventual HFETs can be reduced significantally, ultimately improvin ...

  7. Full Field, Out-of-Plane Digital Image Correlation (DIC) from Ultra-High Speed Digital Cameras

    SBC: Correlated Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A09054

    We propose to develop and implement a full-field, non-contacting deformation and strain measurement system capable of operating at frequencies above 1 MHz with unprecedented accuracy. The system will incorporate two ultra-high speed cameras in order to obtain three-dimensional shape and deformation data using the digital image correlation method. To obtain optimal accuracy at high rates, we propos ...

  8. Manufacturing Development of Allogeneic Stem Cells in Clinical Settings

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: A10117

    Cellular therapies are rapidly moving toward widespread clinical application in cancer treatment, autoimmune disease control and trauma recovery. Human adipose tissue, an available waste product from reconstructive and plastic surgery, is becoming a most popular source of adult stem cells, which are already being applied in autotransplant situations. For allogeneic transplants a leap-ahead manufac ...

  9. Robust Aircraft Electrical Power System Architectures

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: N103212

    The move to more-electric architectures during the past decade in military and commercial airborne systems continues to increase the complexity of designing and specifying the electric power system (EPS). The addition of numerous high-power electric loads has drastically altered the dynamics of power flow on the electrical bus. Many of these loads often exhibit peak-to-average power ratios in exce ...

  10. Graphene synthesis on large-area silicon wafers suitable for manufacture


    The objective of the Phase I project was to demonstrate graphene synthesis on a silicon (Si) wafer with (001) orientation without relying on the transfer of a template layer or any other material from one substrate to another. This Phase I objective was successfully demonstrated using symmetry transformation layers (STL). The proposed Phase II objective is to further develop the STL concept for ...
