  1. Ion-Implanted 2-D MESFET Technology for Wireless Communications

    SBC: Advanced Device Technologies,            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project has two primary objectives. The first objective is to evaluate the feasibility of a fully ion implanted fabrication process based on the heterodimensional 2-D MESFET. The new device, the 2-D JFET, will have p+ ion implanted sidegates which laterally modulate a thin, highly doped n-type conducting channel. The 2-D JFET should have excellent high speed, low power characteristics ...

  2. Thermally Insulated Flexible Composite Cores for Aerospace Applications

    SBC: Infinite Materials & Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerospace composite panels containing a core structure usually use an expanded honeycomb of either aluminum, NOMEX, or carbon fiber. These types of composite panels are often used as structure since the honey-comb core provides stiffness in the "Z" direction. However, they provide no thermal insulation value. Aerospace craft operating both inside and outside the earth's atmosphere experience envir ...

  3. Environmentally Safe, Sprayable, Waterproof, Rapid Three Minute Room Temperature Cure Resin for the Manufacturing of Aerospace Composite Sealants

    SBC: Infinite Materials & Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Currently manufactured aerospace composites absorb water vapor to varying degrees. This moisture absorption adds weight to the composite, however, it lowers the glass transition temperature. And, subsequently, the ultimate strength of the resin holding the composite together, in the total composite matrix. For aerospace vehicles that slip the bonds of Earth and enter the vacume of space, any compo ...

  4. Computer Architecture, Algorithms, Models and Simulations

    SBC: INFORMATION SYSTEMS LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Reconfigurable computing architectures based on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) offer extaordinary real time processing rates in inexpensive programmable hardware. The key to using FPGAs for reconfigurable computing is to reformulate algorithms in terms of parallel operations that are easily implemented with chains of simple processing elements. Currently available commercial integrated cir ...

  5. Solid State Raman Image Amplifier

    SBC: LITE CYCLES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project will focus on the development of a compact, rugged, low-maintenance, cost-effective, all Solid-State Raman Image Amplifier (SSRIA) capable of amplifying low-level LIDAR images and producing gated images with potential gate times of less than a nanosecond. The innovative technology to be implemented is based on a solid-state stimulated Raman s ...

  6. Sensors-Adaptive Beam Expander

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and fabricate an adaptive beam expander that can be switched between two magnifications. Specifically, the beam expander provides diffraction-limited performance for laser radar beams with diameters of 1 mm and 3 mm. The adaptive beam expander is lightweight, and it has no moving parts. Because the beam expander is an afocal system, it operates on both outgoing and incoming be ...

  7. Fabrication of a Low-Cost, Lightweight Cu-AlN Composite for Thermal Management

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High thermal conductivity materials with low CTE, and high strength and stiffness are required for high thermal flux applications. In addition, if these materials are relatively inexpensive, lightweight and non-toxic, and have low vapor pressure to survive in space-operating environments, they will be attractive candidates for thermal management in aerospace structures. Such materials are urgently ...

  8. A Novel High Thermal Conductivity, Low CTE, Low Weight MMC Substrate for Microelectronics Packaging

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program proposes the development of a high thermal conductivity (470-550 W/mK), low coefficient of thermal expansion (5-8 ppm/K), and low weight (2.9-4.3 g/cc) Cu based metal matrix composite material to produce high performance substrates for microelectronics packaging. The proposed MMC system uses copper as the continuous metal matrix and cubic bor ...

  9. Diamond/W Microcathode/Microcathode Array with Very High Field Emission Current Density

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Diamond has recently emerged as a promising material for electron field emission due to its unsurpassed properties of low voltage and room temperature operation, operation robustness, simple design, and reproducibility. However, the present diamond cathodes, which are microcrystalline diamond thin films deposited on macro-substrate (mm to cm size ) suffer a few drawbacks. Only 1-10% or less of the ...

  10. Plasma Synthesis of Aluminum Nitride Nanopowders

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aluminum nitride is as an ideal thermal management material since it has a very high thermal conductivity and its electrical resistivity is comparable to that of ceramic insulators. Aluminum nitride has thermal conductivity five times greater than alumina and has mechanical strength twice that of alumina and beryllium oxide. The current methods of synthesizing and consolidating aluminum nitride re ...
