  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. Carbon Nanotubes for Electromagnetic Interference Shielding

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH INSTITUTE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This STTR Phase I Program will test a processing scheme for fabricating a polymer-based nanocomposite material with significant electrical conductivity for electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding of electronic components and signal wires. The highconductivity of the nanocomposite material is introduced by a nanophase inclusion of a class of cost-effective vapor-grown carbon nanotubes. In th ...

  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. Band Gap Engineering of Advanced Photodetectors via Quantum Size Effects in SiC Nanostructures

    SBC: TAITECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research addresses the critical need for the development of an advanced sensor technology for ballistic missile defense applications. The proposal is aimed at investigating the unique physical processes which occur in wide band gap (WBG)semiconductor nanostructures due to quantum confinement effects. Silicon carbide, an attractive high-temperature, radiation hard semiconductor, whic ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Plasma Spraying of Nd2Fe12B Permanent Magnet Materials

    SBC: APS Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A major problem that exists with Nd2Fe14B permanent magnets is the high cost of fabricating complex shaped isotropic magnets. The fabrication of conventional high performance Nd2Fe14B magnetic materials involves complicated multi-step processes, such as melting, casting, homogenization, crushing, milling, magnetic alignment, pressing, sintering, and annealing. The Controlled Atmosphere Plasma Spra ...

  8. Production of Butyric Acid and Butanol from Biomass

    SBC: Environmental Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In a process known as ABE furmentation (acetone, butanol, ethanol), butanol is produced from biomass carbohydrates via fermentation using the bacteria strain Clostridium acetobutylicum. The process involves the uptake of butyric acid while maintaining the bacteria in a solventogenic phase. In this project, the process will be scaled up to produce only butanol and to determine the efficiency of t ...

  9. 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 ...
