  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. Ionic Self Assembled Monolayer (ISAM) Processes for Electronic Materials and Devices

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Novel ionic self-assembled monolayer (ISAM) processes for the fabrication of advanced electronic materials and devices will be developed through this program. Revolutionary ISAM methods to create nanostructured multi-layer inorganic/organic thin-films offer major advantages over conventional manufacturing processes, since the process is simple, low-cost and environmentally friendly in that no vola ...

  4. Solid State Piezoelectric Flexure Mechanism for Vibration Attenuation/Isolation

    SBC: Garman Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort focuses on the need for innovative, space realizable, self-contained solid state flexure mechanism for vibration attenuation/isolation. The proposed mechanism is a sealed linear actuator capable of high bandwidth (0-1 kHz) control. A design feasibility study will be performed on the use of piezoelectrics in an innovative flexure mechanism to provide robust vibration attenuation ...

  5. Computer Architecture, Algorithms, Models and Simulations


    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. 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. Application of a Novel Micromachining Process to Millimeter Wave Circuit Fabrication


    MicroFab Research (MFR, Inc.) proposes to apply the techniques of micromachining to aid in the fabrication of millimeter wave components, thereby reducing manufacturing expenses. Many microwave applications such as radar and communication systems would be improved by shifting to higher frequencies, provided new lower cost manufacturing techniques can be found. A manufacturing technique is presente ...

  9. Type-II Quantum Cascade Lasers for 3 to 4 micron IR Sources

    SBC: Qet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this research, we will investigate and develop a new class of mid-infrared (3-5 pm) diode lasers vVhich was first proposed by the PI. These lasers utilize interband transitions for photon emission in a staircase of Sb-based type-ll quantum wells. In this way, we retain the advantages of cascaded tunneling injection and wavelength tunability, while circumventing the fast phonon scattering loss e ...

  10. Active Multi-Functional Polymeric Material With Modulation, Switching, and Amplification Capabilities

    SBC: RADIANT RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The achievement in realizing low-loss waveguides on any surface of interests using photolime gel polymer motivates us to further investigate the feasibility of employing such a unique material as a multi-functional polymer that can provide modulation, switching, wavelength conversion and amplification simultaneously on any optoelectronic substrate of interest. In this program, we propose to resear ...
