  1. Laser and Rapid-thermal Crystallization of Low-defect GeSn and SiGeSn Layers for High Performance Infrared Detectors and Integrated Si-based Optoelectronic Devices

    SBC: EPITAXIAL LABORATORY INC            Topic: AF16AT28

    latereThis proposal describes the development of a process to synthesize low defect Ge1-xSnx and SiyGe1-x-ySnx layers on silicon and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) substrates through low thermal budget laser and rapid thermal annealing/crystallization for high performance mid-wave infrared (MWIR) photo detectors and integrated Si-based optoelectronic devices. In phase I, we demonstrated synthesis of G ...

  4. High Temperature Materials for Hypersonic Radomes and Antennas

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: AF18AT013

    Missiles experience a wide range of thermal and mechanical environments due to the large variety of flight profiles.Since it is often the aerodynamic leading edge, the missile radome undergoes significant thermal and mechanical loading. The radome must survive the dynamic pressure loading, thermal shock and environmental erosion from airborne particulates (rain / sand) while performing as an elect ...

  8. Intracellular Detection of Small Molecules in Live Cells

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: Protection of first responders who are exposed to hazards including chemical warfare agents (CWAs) is a very critical need. The need is derived from not only their welfare but their ability to respond, protect the community and provide logistical support to the response. A simple exposure monitor would provide critical information to the first responder and allow them to respond accor ...
