  1. X-RAY MICROLITHOGRAPHY COLLIMATOR DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    DARPA AND THE U.S. SEMICONDUCTOR COMMUNITY ARE ACTIVELY DEVELOPING LASER-PRODUCED PLASMA (LPP) X-RAY SOURCES AS THE BASIS FOR X-RAY MICROLITHOGRAPHY EXPOSURE SYSTEMS. THESE LPP SOURCES WILL ALLOW THE CONSTRUCTION OF COMPACT EXPOSURE SYSTEMS THAT CAN BE EASILY INTEGRATED INTO EXISTING SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION LINES, AT A COSTSUBSTANTIALLY LESS THAN THAT OF COMPARABLE SYNCHROTRON EXPOSURE BEAM-LINE ...

  2. NON-DESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF IMPURITIES AND DEFECTS IN ULTRA-THIN SEMICONDUCTOR FILMS

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE SCANNING PHOTOVOLTAGE (SPV) TECHNIQUE IS A NON-DESTRUCTIVE, HIGH RESOLUTION OPTICAL METHOD FOR MAPPING ELECTRICALLY-ACTIVE DEFECTS IN SEMICONDUCTORS. THE POTENTIAL OF THE SPV TECHNIQUE HAS NOT BEEN REALIZED FOR MODERN, ULTRA-THIN FILM MATERIALS, HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF MULTIPLE REFLECTION INTERFERENCE EFFECTS WHICH MASK THE DEFECT-RELATED SIGNALS. MEASUREMENTS ARE FURTHER HAMPERED BY LOW SIGNAL-TO ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A STARING UNDERWATER LASER RADAR RECEIVER

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN INNOVATIVE AND PROPRIETARY MULTIPLE DETECTOR FOCAL PLANE ASSEMBLY (FPA) DESIGNED TO BE USED FOR HIGH RESOLUTION 3 DIMENSIONAL IMAGING (STARING) UNDERWATER LASER RADAR. THIS FPA DESIGN HAS THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS: CAN BE USED TO DETERMINE THE TIME-OF-ARRIVAL OF A LASER PULSE AT EACH DETECTOR ELEMENT IN THE ARRAY INDEPENDENT FROM THE OTHER DETECTOR ELEMENTS IN THE AR ...

  4. LOOSELY-COUPLED NETWORK DATABASE FOR INFORMATION RETRIEVAL

    SBC: Antaire Corp            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE AN EFFICIENT AND COST-EFFECTIVE QUERY PROCESSING COMPONENT FOR AN INFORMATION RETRIEVAL SYSTEM BASED ON THE USE OF NETWORKED MICROCOMPUTERS AS A LOOSELY-COUPLED NETWORK DATABASE. THE QUERY PROCESSSING SYSTEM WILL WORK ON BOTH LOCAL AND WIDE AREA NETWORKS AND CAN BE USED WITH ANY METHOD OF INFORMATION RETRIEVAL. WE PROPOSE TO: 1. MODEL THE EXPECTED PERFORMANCE OF THIS SYSTEM SO THAT IT M ...

  5. FUNDAMENTAL STUDIES IN HIGH-ENERGY ELECTRON-BEAM WELDING

    SBC: Ballena Systems Corp            Topic: N/A

    WELDING USING HIGH-ENERGY (10-20MEV) ELECTRON BEAMS OFFERS POTENTIAL ADVANTAGES OVER CONVENTIONAL ELECTRON-BEAM WELDING TECHNOLOGIES. POTENTIAL ADVANTAGES OF HIGH-ENERGY ELECTRON BEAM WELDING INCLUDE THE CAPABILITY OF MAKING VERY HIGH QUALITY WELDS IN VERY THICK AND/OR LARGE WORKPIECES AT OR ABOVE ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURES. THE USE OF A HIGH-ENERGY ELECTRON BEAM OBVIATES THE NEED FOR THE NEAR-VACUUM E ...

  6. ULTRA LOW COST FUEL CONTROL SYSTEM FOR EXPENDABLE TURBOJET ENGINE

    SBC: Custom Research Engineering,            Topic: N/A

    THE KEY TO COST REDUCTION OF THE FUEL CONTROL SYSTEM FOR AN EXPENDABLE TURBOJET ENGINE LIES IN UTILIZING THE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE GAS TURBINE ENGINE ITSELF, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF EXISTING FEATURES ON BOARD THE MISSILE, AND COMBINING FUNCTIONS AND COMPONENTS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. THIS PROPOSAL FOLLOWS SUCH AN APPROACH AND OFFERS SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN COMPLEXITY OF THE CONTROL SYSTEM, RES ...

  7. IMPROVED 193NM EXCIMER LASER FOR USE IN A LITHOGRAPHY SYSTEM

    SBC: Cymer Laser Technologies            Topic: N/A

    CYMER LASER TECHNOLOGIES PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A PRODUCTION WORTHY ARGON FLUORIDE EXCIMER LASER FOR A 193NM PROJECTION LITHOGRAPHY SYSTEM WHICH WILL BE USED IN THE FABRICATION OF INTEGRATED CIRCUITS WITH FEATURE SIZES AT OR BELOW 0.25 MICRONS. THE LASER WILL OPERATE AT A REPETITION RATE OF > 500 HZ, WITH PULSE-TO-PULSE STABILITY

  8. MULTI-COMPONENT SYNTHESIS THROUGH ARCHITECTURAL PARTITIONING

    SBC: Dasys Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SYSTEM LEVEL DESIGN DECISIONS ARE KEY TO MULTI-COMPONENT SYNTHESIS: THE DETERMINATION OF WHERE TO SPLIT THE FUNCTIONALITY AMONG COMPONENTS HAS A GREAT EFFECT ON THE SIZE AND PERFORMANCE OF THE DESIGN. BY PARTITIONING A BEHAVIOR ONTO SEPARATE MODULES EARLY IN THE DESIGN PROCESS, THE PHYSICAL IMPLICATIONS CAN BE PROPAGATED TO LATER DESIGN STAGES. DASYS PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A TOOL TO AID IN THE DESIGN ...

  9. ADVANCED FARE PAYMENT MEDIA

    SBC: Echelon Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF SMART CARDS FOR THE PUBLIC TRANSIT INDUSTRY HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED. THERE IS A PERCEPTION THAT SMART CARDS CAN BE USED TO REDUCE THE TOTAL TRANSACTIONCOSTS ASSOCIATED WITH FARE PAYMENT, TO IMPROVE SECURITY, REDUCE FRAUD AND IMPROVE SYSTEM PERFORMANCE AND RIDERSHIP. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE APPROPRIATENESS OF THESE CLAIMS; THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY R ...

  10. THE MANUFACTURING KNOWLEDGE SYSTEM INTEGRATION FRAMEWORK

    SBC: ENTERPRISE INTEGRATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE MANUFACTURING KNOWLEDGE SYSTEM (MKS) IS A PROTOTYPE FRAMEWORK FOR COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING (CIM) OF SEMICONDUCTORS WHICH IS UNDER DEVELOPMENT AT THE STANFORD CENTER FOR INTEGRATED SYSTEMS. THIS SYSTEM IS A SIGNIFICANT STEP FORWARD IN ADDRESING THE ISSUES OF OPENNESS, AVAILABILITY AND MAINTAINABILITY WHICH HAVE LIMITED THE APPLICATION OF CIM TO THE STRATEGICALLY IMPORTANT SEMICONDUCTOR ...
