  1. Novel Synthesis of Fluorinated Parylenes for Low-K Interlayer Dielectric Applications in Submicron ICs

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    As IC manufacturers pursue larger wafer sizes and smaller device features (0.25 um), the interlayer dielectric material becomes critical . Current interlayer dielectric materials, inorganic oxides and spin-coated polymeric materials, have serious deficiencies (e.g.,k >3, water absorption, and spin coating defects). This has led IC manufacturers to search for low-k($6000/lb) has hampered commercial ...

  2. Optical Power Limiters


    Brimrose proposes to produce an improved material for optical power l miting at near infrared wavelengths to protect sensors against jamming and to build a prototype device. The proposed material, vanadium doped cadmium telluride, is relatively new and will be used to fabricate an electro-optic power limiter (EOPL). This approach of using a doped II-VI semiconductor for power limiting was first de ...

  3. Novel Photorefractive Time-Integrating Detector for the Radar Signal Processing


    Using newly developed II-VI photorefractive semiconductors as time integrator and high performance TeO2 acousto optic deflectors (AODs), Brimrose proposes to develop a compact RF signal processor useful in radar signal processing. The high sensitivity of this relatively new photorefractives, in the wavelength range of 0.63ym to 1.6,um, will allow signal processing using low power near infrared las ...

  5. A Novel Method for Manufacturing Low Cost, Large Screen, Wall-Hanging Plasma Display Panels Using a Novel Three Dimensional Camera

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Large-screen (over 35" diagonal length) wall-hanging displays have many applications in BMDO, such as flight simulation, command control center display, mission rehearsal and training, virtual reality environment development. They are also highly demanded in consumer electronics industries, such as high definition TV (HDTV), and electronic instrumentation. However, the current costs of most large ...

  7. A Novel Omnidirectional 3D Camera for Battle Field Modeling and Reconnaissance Vehicles

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To the best of our knowledge, there is no existing battle field modeling or reconnaissance technology that can provide both the real-time three dimensional (3D) range information and the omni-directional viewing capability at any cost. The primary objective of this project is to fill this gap, and to develop a high speed and low-cost 3D image sensor with an omni viewing angle (i.e., 360 degree) fo ...

  9. Development of a Sweating Thermal Conductive Performance Apparatus for

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Fire fighter burn injuries continue to be a frequent problem despite significant advances in protective clothing. A reason for this is the buildup of moisture in fire fighting garments as a result of sweating or fire fighting activities. This buildup of moisture increases the heat transfer through the garment and can result in scald burn injuries as the water is quickly heated. Currently, there is ...
