  2. Novel Polishing and Reactor Technologies for SiC Epitaxial Growth

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Commercially viable silicon carbide device manufacturing processes depend on an ability to grow'low defect density epitaxial layers. Low defect density epitaxial layers start with pristine SiC substrate surfaces. Epi-ready pristine SiC surfaces are not commercially available. The results of this-programme should remedy this. In Phase I we will demonstrate a cost-effective, reproducible ex-situ sur ...

  3. Vandium Precursors for Semi-Insulating SiC Epilayers

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Silicon carbide (SiC) is an ideal semiconductor material for high temperature, high frequency, and high power electronic devices. A SiC technology analogous to silicon - on -insulator (SOI) will be feasible if a suitable dopant precursor and epitaxial growth technique to produce semi-insulating SiC can be developed. Vanadium is an attractive dopant for the formation of semi-insulating SiC. In Phas ...

  4. Radiation hard, nonvolatile, NRDO memory elements

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Metal-ferroelectric-semiconductor field effect transistors (MFS-FETs) have a can be used as nonvolatile memory devices. The primary ferroelectric materials for these devices are perovskite oxides such as lead zirconium titanate (PZT) and strontium bismuth tantalate (SBT). These materials contain highly mobile elements (Pb and Bi) that can interact with silicon at process temperatures and lead to a ...

  10. A Small, Light, Weight, Low Power, Low Cost, FT-IR Spectrometer

    SBC: On-Line Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    There are many military, commercial, and medical applications for a small, rugged, and inexpensive infrared (IR) spectrometer. A Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer would be an ideal tool for such measurements; however, FT-IR spectrometers are very sensitive to vibration and subject to misalignment from mechanically or thermally induced forces. To help overcome these barriers, BMDO pro ...
