  1. Heat Reduction in Semiconductors by Phonon Annihilation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop multiscale simulation tools for coupled carrier-phonon transport in micro/optoelectronic devices and to explore novel concepts of phonon engineering for heat removal and termal management in advancedsemiconductor devices. The phase I effort resulted in a prototype software modules for multiscale simulation of phonon dynamics in LD semiconductors and prov ...

  2. Corrosion Prevention Coatings

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Military aircraft are largely constructed from special aluminum alloys, which typically have secondary precipitate phases that substantially improve mechanical strength. However, these regions also promote corrosion in such common environmental conditionsas acid rain, saltwater, and thermal cycling. The problem is significant enough that the U.S. Air Force expends approximately $1 billion per ye ...

  4. An Electro-optic Near-field and Thermal Mapping System for Microwave and Millimeter-wave Circuits and Antennas

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is to develop a prototype compact, portable electro-optic EM/thermal imaging system. The proposed electromagnetic/thermal imaging system can be directly utilized for thecharacterization of various RF structures including complex integrated circuits and large-scale antenna arrays. It provides near-field and thermal profiles of ...

  5. Lightweight Nanocomposites for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: Mers, Llc            Topic: N/A

    The key requirement for nanocomposite formation is dispersion of clay particles at nm length scales in polymer matrices, which is not trivial. Such a molecular-level dispersion necessitates complete exfoliation of clay particles, which occurs sporadicallywith the fabrication procedures currently in use. Based on a previously demonstrated concept, we propose to develop a novel nanocomposite fabri ...

  6. Shipboard Embedded Wireless Communications System

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The need for effective communications is critical to accomplishing the Navy's mission. However, numerous obstacles, such as waterproof chambers, conductive walls, and high-energy equipment, make the installation and maintenance of an effectivecommunications system difficult. Recent advances in wireless technologies may be able to overcome these obstacles. Based on its Phase I success, Nomadics ...

  7. A Multiband Wide Area Fluorescence Detection System

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nomadics has been working with landmine detection technologies since 1998. During that time we have established the extreme sensitivity of an amplifying fluorescent polymer (AFP) that has been employed in the direct detection of ultratrace quantities ofchemical signature compounds of explosives and effective methods of fluorescence measurement including standoff detection. These methods have the ...

  9. Remote Sensing and Directed Energy Applications of Femtosecond, Terawatt Lasers.

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: N/A

    TDC/UDRI will undertake development of a physics based model for the propagation of terawatt, femtosecond laser pulses through the atmosphere. Previous experiments and theoretical results have made it clear that a new approach must be taken in order tohave an unambiguous understanding of this high power ultrashort laser pulse propagation problem in the atmosphere. Simple extensions of the nonline ...
