  1. Optimization of Seeding for AlN Growth


    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 ...

  2. Sterilization and Decontamination of Surfaces Contaminated

    SBC: APPLIED PULSED POWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Decontamination of military personnel, equipment and facilities that have been exposed to deadly biological and / or chemical warfare agents is of critical concern to U.S. Armed Forces. Conventional technologies used for decontamination and sterilization suffer from drawbacks that include toxic effluents, radiation hazards to personnel, and very long time scales for the decontamination process pr ...

  3. Ion-Beamed Assisted Deposition for Film Growth of High Temp

    SBC: CONDUCTUS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conductus proposes to develop high-quality hiqh-temperature superconducting (HTS) thin films on polycrystalline substrates for high-frequency applications. The approach will utilize a novel technology based on ion-beam assisted deposition (IBAD) for biaxial texturing of oxide films currently under investigation at Stanford University. IBAD will be used to deposit oriented buffer layers on poly-cry ...

  4. Ultra-strong Thermally-Stable Grating Fabrication through t

    SBC: D-Star Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Pulse tube cryocoolers are the cutting edge of regenerative cryocooler development. A series of recent improvements (the orifice, various bypass arrangements) have brought pulse tube cooler performance into the range of Stirling and Gifford-McMahon coolers. A bi-directional Ranque/Hilsch vortex tube performs the functions of both heat-rejecting heat exchanger and orifice, offering further improvem ...

  5. Novel Optical Fiber Grating Based Radiation Sensors

    SBC: D-Star Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop technology for a new generation of ultra-compact, low-cost fiber sensors for detecting gamma- and x-rays. Long-period gratings embedded in a fiber will couple light between the fiber core and a special sensitized fiber cladding. We will investigate the most advantageous grating geometries for such sensors. The fundamental design of a fiber grating based sensor array will be d ...

  6. A Novel Low Cost Fiber Bragg Grating Stabilized Multiwavele

    SBC: FERMIONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A novel fiber Bragg grating stabilized laser array is proposed here. The multi-wavelength source is aimed at low cost dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) applications where the superior properties, i.e., low chirp, low temperature dependence, of the fiber Grating is utilized. The resultant product is a coolerless multi-wavelength laser source that can be modulated with direct current. T ...

  7. Testing Warfighting Systems for the next Millennium Simulat

    SBC: HEXAGON INTERACTIVE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Design of a wargame simulation that accurately models the effects of new weapon systems technologies. The proposal program capitalizes on the extensive design experience of Mr. Josech Miranda in the commercial and military wargaming market, and the expertise at USC in the area of sophisticated autonomous agents to model human decision making in the employment of novel munitions, and the evaluation ...

  8. Combat Simulation Analysis of Advanced Technology Weapons

    SBC: HPS Simulations            Topic: N/A

    PC-based combat simulation software is now capable of accurately recreating the conditions and end results of modern battles. One of the specific uses of such a software package is to evaluate the performance of a proposed modification or entirely new weapons system in battle situations. This will insure the system meets with expectations and requirements, before additional expensive development ...

  9. Sensor Processing and Image Fusion for Passive Target Recog


    The demand for carrying out a complete signal processing task, from multiple sensor output processing to feature extraction to automatic target identification and recognition on a physically restricted platform such as a UAV demands that the signal processor hardware perform all the tasks with minimal hardware. Thus, the hardware must be reconfigurable. The recent advances in the processin ...

  10. Efficient Upconversion Blue Laser Source

    SBC: Lasergenics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    An efficient blue laser concept is proposed based on two-photon upconversion of diode laser near-IR radiation into the blue in a doped-crystal fiber. The upconversion process offers certain performance advantages not readily realized from a system containing nonlinear elements, such as resistance to damage and more relaxed requirements on the laser medium. With thulmium as the doping ion, wavelen ...
