  1. Producibility of Gallium Nitride Semiconductor Materials

    SBC: Inlustra Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA09T001

    Inlustra Technologies and the University of Notre Dame propose a Phase I STTR program that, combined with a subsequent Phase II effort, will result in methods for the scalable production of semi-insulating non-polar GaN substrates. These substrates will be utilized in the fabrication of high-power/high-frequency AlGaN-GaN electronic devices capable of reliable operation under high thermal load. ...

  2. Propulsion Modeling

    SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA09T009

    The occurrence of combustion instability has long been a matter of serious concern in the development of liquid-propellant rocket engines due to the high rate of energy release in a confined volume in which energy losses are relatively small. Positive feedback between the acoustic waves and unsteady combustion could lead to the destruction of an engine in a fraction of a second. The situation is ...

  3. Low Cost, High Performance Transmit/Receive Integrated Circuits on a single chip

    SBC: Anokiwave, Inc.            Topic: MDA09T004

    The objective of this Phase I proposal is to demonstrate, through a rigorous design and modeling, the feasibility of a single chip Transmit/Receive Integrated Circuits (TRIC) with on-chip controller and compensation networks for next generation X-band radar systems. TRIC will include RF, analog and digital circuits on a single chip. TRIC functionality would include Frequency-modulated Continuous ...

  8. ROIC for Hybrid, Coherent and Direct-Detect Flash Ladar Receivers

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA08T004

    Development efforts for hybrid Flash Ladar receivers are underway, however a common limitation is the lack of an appropriate Readout Integrated Circuit (ROIC) to amplify and condition the hybrid Flash Ladar signals. Though Flash Ladar ROICs exist for direct-detect mode and concepts are under development for coherent mode, due to the relative immaturity of the hybrid-mode approach, hybrid-mode ROIC ...

  9. Integrated Thermal Management and Wafer-Scale Packaging for High-Power VCSEL Diode Pump Arrays

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA08T011

    The performance of diode pumped solid state lasers (DPSSLs) is often limited by the performance of the diode laser arrays used to pump the crystal. Of the components making up the DPSSL module, the diode laser arrays consume the most power, dissipate the most waste heat per unit area and are among the most costly to manufacture and qualify. The performance of the diode laser pump array is limite ...

  10. Optimization of Seeding for AlN Growth

    SBC: AMERICAN XTAL TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Aluminum Nitride (A1N) substrates are attractive for III-nitride epitaxial growth due to their high thermal conductivity, close lattice and thermal expansion match to IlI-nitride compositions used for opto-electronic and electronic devices and their relative ease of growth when compared to Gallium Nitride (GaN). Vapor sublimation is an attractive method for growing A1N bulk crystals. Seeded growth ...
