  1. Development of a Truly Lattice-Matched III-Nitride Technology for

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cermet, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to implement a lattice matched III-Nitride technology using existing substrates. The implementation of a lattice matched substrate promises to produce near dislocationfree III-Nitrides for the first time while the use of an existing substrate technology dramatically lowers development cost and reduces the devel ...

  2. Organic Solar Cells Using Star Conductive Polymers

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A new class of organic photovoltaics is proposed based on star conducting polymers. These materials will provide superior hole and/or electron transfer properties that determine the ultimate efficiency of the devices. The star polymer architecture employslinear conjugated arms radiating from a centrosymmetric core, and therfore, unlike the linear arms alone, facilitate carrier transport in three d ...

  3. Biomimetic Inspired Fibers, Materials, and Properties

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The complex biological processing and spinning operations used by the silkworm and spider to create silk fibers lead to a morphology that yields exceptionally high combinations of strength, stiffness, and extensibility. In this proposed STTR effort,Foster-Miller will join with Professor David Kaplan and the Biotechnology Center at Tufts University in an effort to produce films from silk that pos ...

  4. High-Damping Composite Materials for Advanced Aerospace Structures

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation addressed in this proposal is an advanced composite material that provides a high degree of damping with little sacrifice of stiffness or strength. By integrating the functions of load-bearing and vibration suppression, this high-dampingcomposite material (HDCM) will enable the elimination of parasitic structural components. This simplification will improve the reliability of stru ...

  5. Improved SiC Materials for High Power Electronics

    SBC: PHOENIX INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon has long been the semiconductor of choice for high-voltage power electronic applications. Recently, SiC has attracted attention because SiC is projected to have better performance than silicon. [1] SiC power switching devices have yet to becommercialized, largely due to SiC crystal defects, most notably the device-killing micropipe defect, which does not permit high total current parts t ...

  6. Passive Structural Vibration Damping with Ferromagnetic Shape Memory Alloys

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase I will explore the application of composites of polymer and ferromagnetic shape memory alloys (FSMAs) to passive structural vibration damping. The large hysteresis present in the stress-strain behavior of NiMnGa, a ferromagnetic shapememory alloy (FSMA), and other shape memory alloys (SMAs) suggests that both FSMAs and SMAs have the potential to dissipate mechanical energy more ...

  7. A Tunable Interferometric Random Optical Cross-Switch

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A random access, solid-state, optical cross-switch capable of 770 channel discrimination in the telecommunications C-band is designed and proven as an alternative to current thin-film WDM devices and as a mechanically robust alternative tomicroelectromechanical (MEMS) WDM devices. The device may be used in multiplexing (mux), demultiplexing (demux), or complete cross-switch configurations, and is ...

  8. Intelligent Record Linkage Techniques Based on Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing, and Machine Learning

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The sheer magnitude of information available online via the Internet has overwhelmed the ability of existing search tools to produce useful query responses. Current web-search techniques typically fail to correlate relevant documents that areidentified in different ways, such as synonyms and acronyms. The challenge is to find an approach that can obtain highly accurate matches even ...

  9. Modeling and Closed-Loop Control of Complex Flows Over Aerodynamic Surfaces

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of active flow control can reduce or eliminate the number of aerodynamic control surfaces in aircraft. Elimination of control surfaces results in a reduction of weight and drag, as well as radar observability. Recent advances in MicroElectromechanical Systems (MEMS) technology have rendered it a feasible alternative for unsteady flow sensing and control. This project will be performed join ...

  10. Flexible Photovoltaics Based on Organic Matrix Nano-Composites

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Triton Systems, Inc. and Clemson University propose to develop a flexible polymeric photovoltaic assembly using a highly efficient innovative photovoltaic polymer coupled with flexible polymeric support and protective layers that can withstand the spaceenvironment. The Phase I program will verify recent data from Clemson showing that a new polymer combination has the capability to meet power gene ...
