  1. Integrated Thermal Management and Wafer-Scale Packaging for High-Power VCSELs

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA08T011

    Aerius Photonics is proposing to develop high-power Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) and arrays on 4” substrates with an integrated thermal management approach to improve the thermal performance on an entirely wafer-level manufacturing compatible process. This is critical as waste heat and wafer-scale manufacturing approaches are driving factors for performance and costs in a la ...

  2. Producibility of Gallium Nitride Semiconductor Materials

    SBC: Inlustra Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA09T001

    Inlustra Technologies and the University of Notre Dame propose a Phase I STTR program that, combined with a subsequent Phase II effort, will result in methods for the scalable production of semi-insulating non-polar GaN substrates. These substrates will be utilized in the fabrication of high-power/high-frequency AlGaN-GaN electronic devices capable of reliable operation under high thermal load. ...

  3. High Sensitivity Light-Weight Gyroscope

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: MDA08T005

    Gyroscopes are found in nearly every airplane, many cars, robots, missiles, and more. The reason for such broad, wide-spread use is simple: gyroscopes are excellent tools for determining rotation, and can be quite sensitive. Improving the sensitivity of optical gyroscopes while also reducing their size and weight has proven to be a significant challenge. To provide a solution, Los Gatos Researc ...

  4. An Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic with Improved Fracture Toughness and Oxidation Resistance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA09T002

    Hypersonic missile defense systems are being designed to reach global threats. During flight, external surfaces are predicted to reach temperatures in excess of 2200C. As a result, innovative, high performance thermal protection systems (TPS) are of great demand. Among ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTC), it is well known that ZrB2- and HfB2-based materials have high melting temperatures and ...

  6. Contamination-free, Ultra-rapid Reactive Chemical Mechanical Polishing (RCMP) of GaN substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA09T001

    Gallium Nitride (GaN) substrates are ideal materials for fabrication of high-power and high-frequency devices based on III-V materials. The current state-of-the-art Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP) methods are plagued by several challenges, including, surface charge affects due to surface contamination, and sub-surface damages, which can limit the quality of III-V devices. Furthermore, there is ...

  9. Intelligent RF-IR Data Fusion using Artificial Intelligence Techniques

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    There may be no more important mission for the US military than protection from ballistic missile attack. For any configuration of sensors, it is therefore extremely important to make the most of the collected sensor data. Specifically, this proposal describes how this objective can be accomplished by using artificial intelligence techniques to implement human-quality reasoning on object feature ...
