  1. Innovative Hardware Technologies for Electromagnetic Attack Rejection in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radars

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA10T001

    Under this STTR Imaging Systems Technology (IST) will apply novel Plasma-shell technology and expertise with gas plasma systems to shield and protect BMDS Radar. Plasma-shells are tiny hollow gas encapsulating shells. When energy is applied across the shell, the gas inside ionizes into a plasma. Theory of plasma-electromagnetic (EM) field interaction shows that, under appropriate conditions, pl ...

  2. Low Defect Density Mercury Cadmium Telluride on Silicon by Bulk Layer Transfer

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) has been described as one of the most technologically significant semiconductor materials and is the most widely used material for long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging. The current challenge is to produce MCT over large focal plane array size at low cost and high reliability without compromising sensitivity or noise performance. MCT on silicon substrates is highly attr ...

  3. High-Speed Three-Channel Photonic Time Delay Unit

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative, super-miniature, fast-switching array-based photonic time delay device is being developed for the active electronically scanned-array (AESA) MDA and Navy radars. The design is based on the fast electro-optic effect, the super miniature fiber-lens collimation array, and the existing WDM photonic true time delay technologies. In Phase I Agiltron has successfully demonstrated the core ...

  4. Transparent Back Contacts for Thin CdTe-Based Tandem Cells

    SBC: Xunlight 26            Topic: 05a

    CdTe cells have excellent potential for use as top cells in multijunction (tandem) thin-film solar cell structures, but their use is limited by the lack of high performance transparent back contacts to the CdTe. This project will build 1) on recent advances by the Heben group at the University of Toledo in designing carbon nanotube structures for transparent solar cell contacts and 2) on advances ...

  5. Very Large Area Microchannel Plate Neutron Detectors

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 18a

    NOVA Scientific, Inc., teamed with the Electronics Group of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, proposes to construct very large area Microchannel Plate neutron detectors. The applications of these much larger format detectors will serve an exceptionally broad range of government agencies from neutron scattering detectors for DOE to nuclear material panel detectors for NNSA, and ultimately to nuclear m ...

  6. HPC Application Energy Profiling for Energy Optimization

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 36a

    Energy consumption is quickly becoming one of the primary bottlenecks of compute clusters and supercomputers. The DOE is a primary developer and consumer of these power hungry supercomputers, however smaller cluster machines are also widely used through other government agencies and industries. Yet, there are few power profiling tools that allow application developers transparent insight into the ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. High Temperature Unique Low Thermal Conductivity Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) Architectures

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: 27c

    Higher operating temperature for the gas turbine engine is needed for enhanced efficiency, lower emission and increased performance goal. The current state-of-the-art thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are not adequate to provide the needed protection for the metallic components of the turbine engine operating at higher TBC surface temperature ( & gt;1300C) with increased reliability. Thus there is a ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
