  3. FAST ELECTROCHROMIC SWITCHING FOR OPTICAL HARDENING APPLICATIONS

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

    A PROGRAM TO DEVELOP ELECTROCHROMIC DEVICES CAPABLE OF FAST TRANSMISSIVE TO REFLECTIVE OPTICAL SWITCHING IS PROPOSED. THESE DEVICES WOULD BE USED FOR OPTICAL HARDENING IN THE WAVELENGTH RANGE FROM 0.615 MICROMWTERS. OPTICAL SWITCHING ELEMENTS BASED ON SINGLE CRYSTAL LAYERS OR EPITAXIAL FILMS OF THE METAL DICHALOCOGENIDES ZRS(2) AND HF(2) WOULD BE DEVELOPED. WE PROPOSE TO INTERCALATE SINGLE CRYSTAL ...

  5. SURFACE MORPHOLOGY OF SILICON ON INSULATOR FILMS PREPARED BY ZONE-MELTING RECRYSTALLIZATION

    SBC: Kopin Corporation            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH IS DIRECTED AT TECHNIQUES TO IMPROVE SURFACE MORPHOLOGY IN SILICON ON INSULATOR (SOI) WAFERS PREPARED BY ZONE MELTING RECRYSTALLIZATION (ZMR). THE THREE AREAS OF PRIMARY IMPORTANCE IN IMPROVING THE SURFACE MORPHOLOGY OF ZMR PROCESSED WAFERS ARE: SLIP, BOW AND WARP, AND SURFACE SMOOTHNESS. SLIP IS CAUSED BY THERMALLY INDUCED STRESS THAT RESULTS FROM THE TEMPERATURE GRADIENT IN THE MELT ZON ...

  10. HIGH RESOLUTION HIGH SPEED BISTABLE OPTICAL DEVICE FOR OPTICAL COMPUTING APPLICATIONS

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

    OPTICAL COMPUTERS ARE RECOGNIZED AS POTENTIALLY USEFUL ELEMENTS IN THE QUEST TO MEET THE INTENSE BATTLE MANAGEMENT COMPUTATIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE SDI PROGRAM. CURRENTLY, OPTICAL COMPUTERS ARE GREATLY LIMITED IN PERFORMANCE BECAUSE NO EXISTING NONLINEAR LIGHT MODULATION DEVICE SIMULTANEOUSLY OFFERS FAST OPTICAL SWITCHING WITH HIGH GAMMA (THRESHOLD), HIGH SPATIAL BANDWIDTH, LOW POWER DISSIPATION, ...
