The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Monolithically Interconnected, Thin Silicon Solar Cell Array

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ASTROPOWER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH EFFICIENCY, MONOLITHICALLY INTERCONNECTED THIN SILICON SOLAR CELL ARRAY. THE ARRAY INCORPORATES AN INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUE TO ACHIEVE ELECTRICAL ISOLATION AND INTERCONNECTION OF THE ARRAY ELEMENTS. A MONOLITHICALLY INTERCONNECTED ARRAY TECHNOLOGY OFFERS REDUCED COST AND COMPLEXITY AS WELL AS INCREASED RELIABILITY AND YIELD COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL SO ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. HIGH SPEED SHEET GROWTH OF THIN SILICON

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL SILICON DEPOSITION PROCESS CAPABLE OF DEPOSITING HIGH QUALITY THIN-FILM SILICON LAYERS ON LOW COST SUPPORTING SUBSTRATES WILL BE INVESTIGATED IN PHASE I. THE SUBSTRATE WILL INCLUDE A REFLECTOR FOR LIGHT TRAPPING. THE PLANNED DEPOSITION PROCESS WILL ALLOW THE FORMATION OF SILICON LAYERS 20 TO 30 MICRONS THICK, OPTIMIZING THE PERFORMANCE OF CRYSTALLINE SILICON AS A SOLAR CELL MATERIAL. TH ...

  4. MONOLITHICALLY INTEGRATED BICOLOR EDGE EMITTER-DETECTOR PAIRS FOR WAVELENGTH-DIVISION MULTIPLEXING

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INVESTIGATORS ARE DEVELOPING MONOLITHICALLY INTEGRATED BICOLOR EDGE EMITTER-DETECTOR PAIRS FOR WAVELENGTH-DIVISION MULTIPLEXING IN FIBER OPTIC COMMUNICATIONS. THIS DEVICE UTILIZES LATERALLY GRADED A1XGA1-XAS LAYERS FORMED BY LIQUID PHASE EPITAXIAL DEPOSITION ONTO A CONTINUOUSLY MOVING SUBSTRATE. MULTIPLE LIGHT EMITTING DIODES AND DETECTORS CAN BE COLINEARLY INTEGRATED IN THE SAME DEVICE TO EMIT/ ...

  5. LOS COST, HIGH PURITY SILICON BY ALKALINE GLYCOLIC DIGESTION OF SILICA

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE SOLAR CELL APPLICATION OF CRYSTALLINE SILICON THIN-FILM, PHOTOCOLTAIC (PV) TECHNOLOGIES IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY THE HIGH COST OF THE SILICON RAW MATERIAL. THIS IS A RESULT OF THE CARBOTHERMAL REDUCTION METALLURGICAL PROCESS USED TO CREATE THE SEMICONDUCTOR-GRADE SILICON FROM SILICA. THERE IS A NOVEL ALTERNATIVE ORGANOSILICON CHEMISTRY, BASED ON ALKALINE GLYCOLIC DIGESTION OF SILICA, THAT DOE ...

  8. InAsSb/GaSb Infrared Light-Emitting Diodes (LED's)

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop intense, mass-producible, low-cost 4 to 5 micron light-emitting diodes (LED's) using liquid-phase heteroepitaxy of lattice-matched InAsSb on GaSb substrates. The brightest visible LEDs (Ultrabrights) currently available are being produced commercially by the liquid phase heteroepitaxy process using materials with bandgaps in the appropriate visible range for the part ...

  9. A SUPERPLASTIC OXIDE DISPERSION STRENGTHENED MAGNESIUM ALLOY FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Chesapeake Composites Corporation            Topic: N/A

    REDUCTION OF AUTOMOBILE WEIGHT IS AN IMPORTANT APPROACH TO REDUCING FUEL CONSUMPTION. MAGNESIUM ALLOYS WOULD OFFER THE POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT REDUCTIONS IF THEY WERE MORE READILY FORMED AND THEIR STIFFNESS COULD BE INCREASED. HIGH STRAIN RATE SUPERPLASTIC FORMING OFFERS A COST EFFECTIVE ROUTE FOR THE PRODUCTION OF AUTOMOTIVE COMPONENTS. HOWEVER, TO BE SUPERPLASTIC, MAGNESIUM ALLOYS MU ...

  10. REMOVAL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS FROM GASEOUS EFFLUENT STREAMS BY NOVEL PERFLUOROMEMBRANES

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EFFLUENT STREAMS ARE A SERIOUS AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM. CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES FOR VOCS HAVE BEEN OXIDATION OR CARBON ABSORPTION BUT RECENTLY MEMRANES HAVE SHOWN EFFECTIVENESS. PRESENT MEMBRANE PROCESSES WORK BY PREFERENTIALLY PASSING VOCS (VERSUS AIR) THROUGH THE MEMBRANE AND THEN COMPRESSING AND CONDENSING OUT DOWNSTREAM VOCS. ADVANTAGES OF THIS MEMBRANE PROCESS INCLU ...
