  1. AlGaInP/GaAs 27% Efficient Top Solar Cells

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower will develop a two-junction monolithic tandem solar cell composed of (AlxGa1-x)0.51 In(0.49)P, which is lattice matched to GaAs, as the top cell in a three-junction, two-terminal tandem solar cell. This new tunable bandgap Al-Ga-In-P material is capable of current matching in a two-junction monolithic tandem solar cell two-terminal design of the Al-Ga-In-P over GaAs yielding a best case ...

  2. AlGaP/GaP Heterostructure Ultraviolet Detector

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower is developing a highly sensitive UV detector based on epitaxial AlGaP/GaP heterostructures, a promising new material system for ultraviolet detectors. Detecting ultraviolet light is important to spectrophotometry, astronomy, high-energy physics, medicine, UV curing, photoresist exposure, and chemical processes. The large bandgap and crystalline quality of gallium phosphide will provide ...

  3. Eddy-Current Probe Testing Station

    SBC: Sabbagh Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design an eddy-current probe testing station, built aronnd a PC running Interactive Systems Carp. UNIX (ISC UNIX). The testing station will provide a quantitative evaluation of eddy-current probe perform aJice ? thereby improving the accuracy and reha,bility of eddy-current inspection. The station will consist of a model foi probe-flaw interactions, a data acqmsition system, and a. u ...

  4. FREQUENCY-DEPENDENT CHARACTERISTICS OF MILLIMETER-WAVE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT ELEMENTS ON ANISOTROPIC SUBSTRATES

    SBC: Sabbagh Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SERIOUS LACK OF EFFICIENT COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN (CAD) PROCEDURES EXISTS FOR HIGH-PERFORMANCE MONOLITHIC MILLIMETER WAVE INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, THAT OPERATE BETWEEN 30 AND 100 GHZ. THIS IS DUE TO THE HIGH-FREQUENCY BEHAVIOR OF THE VARIOUS (PASSIVE) COMPONENTS AND HIGH SPEED INTERCONNECTORS OF THE SYSTEM, AS WELL AS TO THE ANISOTROPY OF THE SUBSTRATE. THIS BEHAVIOR IS NOT SIGNIFICANT AT LOWER FREQUE ...

  7. Hydrofoil Small Waterplane Area Ship (HYSWAS) Demonstrator

    SBC: MARITIME APPLIED PHYSICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    1The present proposal addresses those mission areas where excellent seakeeping is required in a small, high-speed craft that has substantial range. A preliminary and detail design will be performed for a 10-ton, carbon-fiber reinforced Hydrofoil Small Waterplane Area Ship (HYSWAS). The design will establish hydrostatic, hydrodynamic, structural, control and propulsion aspects of the demonstration ...

  8. INFOMATION-THEORETIC ROBUST SPEECH PARAMETERIZATION

    SBC: Entropic Res Laboratory Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LIKE HUMAN RECOGNITION PERFORMANCE, COMPUTER RECOGNITION PERFORMANCE DEGRADES INEVITABLY IN THE PRESENCE OF INTERFERENCE AND DISTORTION. THERE ARE TWO BASIC APPROACHES TO MINIMIZING THE DEGRADATION: (1) SEEK NEW ACOUSTIC FEATURES THAT YIELD PERFORMANCE THAT IS LESS SENSITIVE TO SIGNAL CORRUPTION; (2) TRY TO "SEE THROUGH" THE CORRUPTION AND TO THE "TRUE" VALUES OF THE INFORMATION-BEARING FEATURES. ...

  9. Large Area Thin Film Silicon Carbide Using Zone Melt Synthesis and LPE

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower is developing a new process for the growth of large area, thin film 3C-SiC using a proprietary deposition technique followed by liquid phase epitaxy (LPE). Successful development of the growth process will provide high quality, thin film SiC in typical silicon wafer areas, allowing compatibility with existing silicon circuit foundries for devices where SiC is the material of choice. New ...

  10. Laser and LED Arrays for Optical Computing

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    1 New concepts in optical computing and optical interconnects require hardware developments of generic, compact, multi-element LED source array. A two dementional array of individually-addressable Light-emitting Diode optical emitters will be developed. An innovative CVD/LPE heteropitaxy technique will be employed for the monolithic integration of high-speed-surface-emitting AlGaAs/GaAs LEDs on si ...
