  1. ZnO Based UV Detector

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The goal of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of growing solar blind UV photodetectors made of zinc oxide. The primary goal of Phase I will be to demonstrate the growth of high quality homoepitaxial thin films of pure and alloyed ZnO usingCermet's MOCVD reactor and in-house fabricated ZnO substrates. Films will be analyzed using x-ray diffraction, PL, and electrical measurements. ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. High Resolution 3d Acoustic Pre-Launch and Boost Phase Detection/Tracking System A-Acoustic and Seismic

    SBC: Marine Physics & Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed Phase I effort addresses the problem of early pre-launch warning forballistic missiles and early boost phase missile detection and tracking.Specifically, the effort will evaluate the application of new energy efficient, highresolution, 3d, acoustic linear processing array concepts to the detection andtracking of pre-launch trailer-erector-launchers (TELs) and early boost phasemissile ...

  5. LOW-LOSS HYBRID RF/ELECTROOPTIC SUBSYSTEMS-ON-A-CHIP

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed research program seeks to develop a totally new hybrid waveguide materials platform for low-loss integrated-optic subsystems-on-a-chip that incorporate both electrooptic and RF electronic functionality. The unique architecture of these chipswill integrate mode-matched doped silica input and output waveguides with the electrooptic waveguide region, so as to provide exceptionally low ...

  6. Enhanced Dielectric Performance in Metal/Polymer Nanocomposites Deposited by CCVD

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    "This STTR Phase I will study and utilize the dielectric properties of nanocomposites (metal nanoparticles in a polymer matrix). It is theorized that dipoles in the metal (when in an applied field) simulate a true dielectric. These artificial dielectricshave the potential to have high dielectric constants (>100) while maintaining the low temperature processability of polymers. These practical, ...

  7. Low cost fabrication of pyroelectric thin films and novel structures for IR sensors by combustion CVD

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    "Infrared (IR) sensors are required for military and commercial applications such as human body recognition, non-contact temperature detection, and image sensing. The U.S. infrared market is growing rapidly and the market would benefit greatly with furtherreduction in cost, size, weight and power consumption. Also, integrated devices and systems compatible with typical semiconductor process are b ...

  8. Nanolaminate Coatings Using CCVD For High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    "Oxygen barrier materials are being developed to increase the life time of thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) in the advanced gas turbine industry. Approaches including oxidation resistant coatings as inner layers between the bond coat and TBCs andprotective/sintering inhibitor layers on TBCs have been explored. Concepts including oxides such as alumina are being considered. Current techniques lik ...

  9. Epitaxial Thermochromic Thin Films for Optical Modulator Applications via CCVD

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    "The continued proliferation of imaging infrared (IR) missile systems has created the need for fully representative IR scene generators. In order to test these imaging IR systems correctly, a very large dynamic range is required of the scene generator. Thiscan not easily be produced by the standard approach of an array of suspended resistor heater elements. IR optical modulators based on thermal s ...

  10. Low Cost Fabrication of Diamond Films Using Combustion CVD

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    "Diamond represents a multimillion market due to its unique combination of superior thermal, electronic, optical, dielectric, chemical, and mechanical properties. However its applications are far from fully developed. One of the hurdles is the lack of asuitable technique to make high quality diamond with low cost comparable to that of other materials in various application areas. MicroCoating Tech ...
