  1. "ELECTRO-DEPOSITION OF SILICON FILMS FROM LIQUID-METAL SOLUTIONS FOR PHOTOVOLTAIC APPLICATIONS"

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ELECTRO-DEPOSITION OF SILICON FILMS FROM LIQUID-METAL SOLUTIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP A LOW-COST PROCESS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF HIGH-EFFICIENCY THIN-FILM PHOTOVOLTAIC DEVICES. SPECIFICALLY, CURRENT-CONTROLLED GROWTH OF A SILICON FILM ON A SUBSTRATE IS ACCOMPLISHED USING A LIQUID-METAL SOLUTION, SUCH AS TIN, AND A SILICON SOURCE ELECTRODE. THE QUALITY OF SILICON GROWN FRO ...

  2. 1 Micron Fiber Optic Receiver for Mil-Aero Environment

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N171031

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a high-power, high-speed photodiode (PD) receiver optimized for operation at 1 micron wavelength based on collaboration with Dr. J.C. Campbells research group at the UVA. Demand of such photonic receiver arose from the urgent need of high performance microwave photonic links that replace the conventional metal cables for better SWaP, immunity to EMI and broader ...

  5. A New Architecture for FUN3D on Modern HPC Systems

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: S501

    The goal of this project is to refactor NASA's FUN3D computation fluid dynamic (CFD) simulation code to enable it to take full advantage of accelerator hardware available on modern hybrid computing environments. We will rearchitect FUN3D to take advantage of HPC tools we are currently building for NASA Goddard, using a dynamically-scheduled, task-based approach, with the goals of improving scalabi ...

  6. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Metal Sorting Sensor for Chemical Cleaning and Stripping Process

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161009

    ABSTRACT: After a certain amount of service time, many aircraft components need to be cleaned and the coatings on those parts need to be stripped. Prior to the chemical cleaning and stripping processes, those parts are routinely examined by inspectors to locate the part numbers and find their matches on a list. Such a visual inspection process is not only time consuming, but also prone to human er ...

  10. Accelerated Numerical Processing API Based on GPU Technology

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: S802

    The recent performance increases in graphics processing units (GPUs) have made graphics cards an attractive platform for implementing computationally intense applications. With their numerous parallel computational pipelines and SIMD architecture, modern GPUs can outperform high-end microprocessors by one to three orders of magnitude, depending on the problem. Most work to date at EM Photonics a ...
