  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. Nitride, Carbide and Non-Oxide In Situ Coatings Using RECVD,A New CVD Method

    SBC: CCVD, Inc dba MicroCoating Technologies (MCT)            Topic: N/A

    Currently, thermal spray (flame and plasma spray) is the only single step method of applying most metal and non-oxide ceramic coatings to large objects. These coatings are usually of a low quality, and thin films cannot be applied. An in situ deposition technique that inexpensively and easily applies nitrides, carbides and other non-oxide thin or thick films in an environmentally friendly manner i ...

  3. Production Friendly GaN Coatings Using RECVD, a New CVD Method

    SBC: CCVD, Inc dba MicroCoating Technologies (MCT)            Topic: N/A

    Currently vacuum based methods of PVD and CVD are the only processes for forming GaN thin films and coatings. These methods are usually expensive and are not applied in a production friendly manner. An atmospheric deposition technique that inexpensively and easily applies GaN thin or thick films in an environmentally friendly manner is a priority for any number of DOD and commercial applications. ...

  4. Powder Synthesis and Bulk Crystal Growth of Gallium Nitride

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The primary goal of Phase I work is to demonstrate the feasibility of synthesizing gallium nitride (GaN) powder. Secondarily, this powder will be used to grow high-purity single crystals of GaN from a liquid GaN phase. This would be accomplished using a proprietary variation of the skull melting technique. Since GaN demonstrates peritectic-type decomposition at atmospheric pressure, the entire sku ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Chip-Levewl Doppler Laser Radar

    SBC: LIGHTWORKS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Recent progress in self-mixing Doppler sensors have proven that measurement performance similar to that obtained with continuous-wave coherent laser radar is feasible, but with at least an order of magnitude less complexity and cost. We believe that extremely simple hardware signal processors can also be built as single chips, or at most a few chips. This points to the possibility of developing hi ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. High-Density, Reconfigurable Optical Routing Interconnects

    SBC: Macro-vision Communications,            Topic: N/A

    High-density reconfigurable optical routing interconnect is introduced in this SBIR program for optical signal processing. This structure is based on three key features: 1) Polarization manipulation using 2-D spatial light modulators; 2) polarization complementary geometry; and 3) the throw-away undesired optical energies design. The polarization manipulation provides the basis for "no-moving" par ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. SiC IR Emitter on Large Area Flexible Substrates for thermophotovoltaic Applications

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Materials Research Group, Inc. (MRG) proposes the process development of low-temperature fabrication processes for thin film silicon carbide (SiC) infrared (IR) emitter on flexible substrates for thermophotovoltaic (TPV) applications. Optimizing the emitter is critical to an effective TPV system. The outstanding thermal and chemical stability of SiC enable it to operate at high temperatures up to ...
