  4. Thin Robust Electrical Insulator for High Field HTS Magnets

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 62d

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is proposed to address high temperature superconductor insulation to help improve stability and quench protection. Most importantly stability will be increased so that the power level at which quench occurs is greatly increased. Quench is the rapid, unintended transition from superconducting to normal conducting. It is a consequence of a faul ...

  5. Development of High Current 2G High Temperature Superconductor Cabling Technology

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 66c

    Future magnets for Fusion Energy Systems require superconducting cables with improved high critical current carrying capacity at high magnetic fields, 20 Kelvin operation, low AC losses and lower cost. A new method of fabricating a high current cable with 2G HTS tapes has been developed that will improve the engineering current density achievable. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Fut ...

  6. Continuous Wave Terahertz Source Photonic Band Engineering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The terahertz (THz) wave region is an underutilized electromagnetic spectrum in which generation is difficult. The existing THz sources are generated either by large and expensive free electron laser or by pulsed optical radiations. There is an increasedneed for continuous THz wave source of high temporal and spatial coherence. The practical use of THz spectrum requires new laser technology th ...

  7. ZnO Based Integrated Photonics

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "ZnO is an excellent candidate for the growing field of nanophotonics due to its index of refraction, availability of native substrates, and the possibility of light emission. These properties make ZnO an ideal candidate on this growing field. Phase Iwork will concentrate in designing and characterizing waveguides, which will be the interconnects of future ZnO based devices built homoepitaxiall ...

  8. Development of Lattice-Matched AlInN MBE Technology for UV Emitters and High Frequency Electronic Applications

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Cermet, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, propose to implement a lattice matched AlInN using existing substrate technology. The implementation of a lattice matched substrate promises to produce near dislocation freeAlInN heterojunction for the first time while the use of an existing substrate technology dramatically lowers development cost and reduces the devel ...
