  1. GaN Substrate Technology

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Kyma Technologies will develop a cost-effective technique to grow high-quality gallium nitride (GaN) by developing a high growth rate process for creating crystalline GaN boules, which are used as a starting material for semiconductor device manufacturing. Currently, growing boules from GaN seeds is slow, expensive, and inconsistent, which negatively affects manufacturing yield and electronic devi ...

  2. Synergistic and Smart Micro-Controls for Enhanced SCBA Equipment


    This proposal outlines the successful demonstration of electrochemical CO2 removal that generates virtually no heat, from a humid breathing gas mixture. Mainstream evaluated micro-sensors for monitoring temperature, humidity, CO2, and O2 for breath monitoring for the self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Advanced CO2 separating technology combined with micro-sensors and controls allows for op ...

  3. Publication and Retrieval of Computational Chemical-Physics Data via the Semantic Web

    SBC: CHEMICAL SEMANTICS, INC.            Topic: 09a

    This project is is applying the semantic web to the data produced by chemical-physics simulations. The semantic web allows data to be placed on a web site in a way that computers can understand it. This will allow a computer to browse a giant global graph of data, as an agent for scientists, and integrate this data into new knowledge (meta-data).

  4. Development of an Active, Man-Portable, Cooling System for Use with Personal Protective Clothing/Equipment (PPC/PPE)


    Mainstream has developed an active cooling system that can provide a cool/dry environment to workers in enclosed protective clothing/equipment. The technology is lightweight, comparable to a small backpack in size, and will improve working conditions so that heat stress is no longer a concern for workers wearing fully encapsulating suits.

  5. In-Line Quality and Process Control in Solar and Fuel Cell Manufacturing

    SBC: Ultrasonic Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 02b

    The program will develop a new quality and process control methodology and tool prototype for real-time inspection of crystalline silicon solar and ceramic solid oxide fuel cells. The Activation Station will be used in-line to reduce cost, save energy and increase yield of solar and fuel cell module production.

  7. FLAAT Growth Technology for Low Cost Thick High Quality GaN on Thin 8 Sapphir

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 11b

    The use of non-native substrates for GaN- based devices leads to devices with high densities of defects stemming from misfit dislocation formation due to lattice mismatch and large values of wafer bow stemming from thermal mismatch. The latter is particularly problematic as one attempts to grow device films on large area substrates. The high defect densities give rise to degraded performance and r ...

  8. Multiscale Hydrogeologic-Biogeochemical Process Monitoring and Prediction Framework

    SBC: Subsurface Insights            Topic: 20a

    Remediation and long term management of contaminated sites is likely to require hundreds of billions of dollars. Most of the sites which remain in the US inventory of contaminated sites do not have simple solutions, and effective remediation of these sites will require a fundamental, timely and actionable understanding of physical, chemical and biological processes and overall system behavior in c ...

  9. Light-weight, Low-volume, High Oxygen Storage Density Material for Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus


    This proposal outlines Mainstreams successful Phase I feasibility demonstration related to the fabrication of hierarchical hybrid nanomaterials for oxygen storage vessels. These vessels exceed the volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity of an oxygen cylinder by 245% and 170%, respectively. Included in these storage density values is a solid-state oxygen regulation system that also enables comp ...

    The United States economy and the American way of life rely heavily on transportation by cars and trucks. This transportation is dependent almost entirely on oil, which creates vulnerability to supply chain disruptions, potential for fuel price shocks, and exposure to emission of air pollutants. Reducing vehicular fuel consumption is critical for sustaining United States economic and ...
