  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. Third Generation Infrared Focal Plane Arrays based on HOT" HgCdTe Detectors"

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    HgCdTe infrared arrays operating at 77K can now be tailored to a wide range of wavelengths ranging from 1 to 14 mm. However, the cooling requirements of traditional detectors make them bulky and unsuitable for many applications. Due to advancements inmaterials and device technologies, it is now possible to fabricate HgCdTe-based infrared arrays operating close to room temperature with sensitiviti ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Novel heterojunction diodes for High Power Electronics

    SBC: VIATRONIX            Topic: N/A

    The wide-bandgap semiconductors GaN and SiC hold great promise for high temperature and highpower electronic devices. This is due to the attractive properties these materials possess, such as wide energy bandgaps, high breakdown fields, high thermalconductivities, and high saturated electron velocities. In addition, GaN and SiC have adequate electron mobilities and can readily be doped n and p ty ...

  6. Neutron Scattering Instrumentation for Measurement of Melt Structure

    SBC: Containerless Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Liquid phase processing is a key step in the production of glasses, photonic materials, semiconductors, metals and alloys. An improved understanding of liquid structure and behavior would help improve the energy efficiency, yield, and quality of materials formed by liquid phase processing. This project will develop an advanced neutron scattering instrument for the study of liquids and non-equili ...

  7. Development of a Computer Code System for Simulation of Target Performance for the RIA (Rare Isotope Accelerator)

    SBC: I.C. Gomes Consulting & Investment Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The target system for the Rare Isotope Accelerator (RIA) will consist of several specially designed targets that utilize a wide variety of high power beams from the driver accelerator. However, the simulation of target performance has many drawbacks: (1) the computer codes for the transport of beam particles and rare isotope production were developed and maintained for other accelerator applicati ...

  8. Free Surface Flowing Liquid-Plasma Interaction Facility

    SBC: NPL ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Attractive fusion energy sources will require the use of new concepts and advanced materials, able to withstand the high levels of surface heat flux and neutron wall loads for in-vessel components. The application of free surface flowing liquids as plasma-facing components in future fusion energy systems will meet this need. This project will examine key liquid-plasma interaction issues to asses ...

  9. Advanced Membrane Technology for Biosolvents

    SBC: Vertec Biosolvents, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Total solvent usage in the U.S. is 3.8 million tons per year, and due to toxicity and environmental needs, a large fraction needs to be replaced. Ethyl lactate and its blends with soy methyl ester have excellent solvating properties and, when price and other market penetration issues are considered, approximately 25% of the solvent usage can be addressed by these biosolvents. This project will u ...

  10. Advanced Accelerator Design to Enhance Boron-Neutron-Capture Therapy

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Recent clinical trials have cast doubt on the efficacy of Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) for brain tumor treatment when low energy, reactor-generated neutron beams are used. It has been predicted that higher energy, accelerator-produced neutron beams would have an epithermal neutron spectrum that would be much more effective. Therefore, this project will design and fabricate an innovative ...
