  4. Biotechnology Applied Nanostructures

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO APPLY A BIOTECHNOLOGY-BASED PROCESS TO MAKE NANOSTRUCTURES FOR OPTOELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS. THE RESULT WILL BE A UNIFORM ARRAY OF SILICON QUANTUM BOXES OF IDENTICAL DIMENSIONS IN A SILICON LAYER OF CONTROLLED THICKNESS. ALL THREE TECHNIQUES, CONTROLLED THICKNESS OF A CRYSTALLINE Si LAYER, FORMATION OF A UNIFORM ARRAY, AND ITS USE AS A PATTERN FOR REPLICATING A SEMICONDUCTOR ARRAY, HA ...

  5. GROWTH OF GAN SINGLE-CRYSTAL BOULES

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project will produce single-crystal boules of GaN that can be sliced and sold as high-quality substrates for the epitaxial growth of differently-doped GaN or of other lattice-matching crystals, or as wafers for use in optoelectronic and acoustooptic applications. The feasibility of GaN boules will be tested on a small scale: to produce cm3-sized crystals. The process will be scles up ...

  6. SOLAR-BLIND GAN/ALN UV AND VUV SENSOR

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Astralux, Inc. will develolp a seminconductor sensor sensitive to bacuum ultraviolet photons. For this, we shall synthesize a wide bandgap semiconductor capable of forming a built-in electric field that will separate the photogenerated electron-hole pairs and produce a photovoltage in response to the incident UV. This sensor should have no response to light in the visible spectrum. In this project ...

  7. DIAMOND-BASED THERMAL SENSORY ELEMENT

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a market for a room temperature infrared detector as well as for a detection system which is radiation resistant and works at high temperatures and in reactive environments. Current infrared imaging technologies are too expensive and too bulky for these applications. We are proposing to develop an infrared and thermal detector based on a novel kind of light converter. The concept incorpor ...

  9. High Quantum Efficiency, Low-noise, Radiation-tolerant AlGaP CCD-UV

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ASTROPOWER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NEW FRONT-ILLUMINATED, ALUMINUM GALLIUM PHOSPHIDE (AlGaP) BASED, CHARGE-COUPLED DEVICE (CCD), ULTRAVIOLET (UV) IMAGING ARRAY. THIS NOVEL ARRAY TECHNOLOGY HAS NEVER BEEN SUCCESSFULLY DEVELOPED. THREE NEW INNOVATIONS WILL BE NECESSARY TO ACOMPLISH THE AlGaP CCD. THESE ARE: AlGaP MATERIAL QUALITY WHICH CAN SUPPORT A CCD DEVICE; THE GROWTH OF A NATIVE OXIDE ON THE AlGa ...
