  1. MICROSTACK INSULATOR FOR HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    POLYMERIC OR CERAMIC INSULATORS CONVENTIONALLY ARE BEING USED IN HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS. NEW APPROACHES ARE NEEDED THAT WOULD REDUCE INSULATORS RING THICKNESSES AND INCREASE CORRESPONDING GRADING RINGS FLASHOVER VOLTAGE. SUCH AN APPROACH WOULD POSSESS IN COMPARISON TO CONVENTIONAL INSULATORS: HIGHER SURFACE FLASHOVER FIELD STRENGTH; SMALLER PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS FOR EQUIVALENT VOLTAGE HOLDOFF; ...

  2. HIGH POWER LOW IMPEDANCE LIGHT WEIGHT TRANSMISSION LINES

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH POWER, LOW IMPEDANCE, LIGHTWEIGHT ENERGY STORAGE TRANSMISSION LINES FOR PULSE-POWER APPLICATIONS IS CRUCIAL FORSMALLER, LIGHTWEIGHT, SPACE-BASED, PULSE-POWER SYSTEMS. DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH DIELECTRIC ENERGY STORAGE LINE TECHNOLOGY WOULD GREATLY REDUCETHE SIZE, WEIGHT, AND COMPLEXITY OF PULSE POWER SYSTEMS UTILIZING THESE TYPES OF COMPONENTS. EFFICIENT TRANSPORT OF 400KV, 100K ...

  3. Crystal Growth in KTiOPO(4)-NaTiOPO(4)

    SBC: Crystal Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    Phase I will study tailoring the refractive index elliposoid of KTP to permit Type II phase matching at wavelengths shorter than 900nm, thereby permitting the SHG of laser diodes and Ti:Al2O3 solid state lasers. The system of solid solutions from mixing KTP with CsTiOPO4 will be studied and crystals grown. The nonlinear optical, mechanical and electrical properties of these crystals will be determ ...

  4. Electroformed High Resolution Thick Metal Film for Hyper-Dense Electronic Packaging

    SBC: Electrochemical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    20 microns thick metal film deposits at thin film resolutions will ensure densely integrated MCMs essential to advanced electronic devices such as onboard data and signal processing systems (OBDP). 99.8% dense and 99.8% pure monolithic and environmentally stable copper interconnects in analog applications will remove heat and control impedance with 5-10 times capacity. Two to three times higher ch ...

  5. ON-SITE GENERATION OF PHOSPHINE FOR ELECTRONIC DEVICES

    SBC: Electron Transfer Tech            Topic: N/A

    PHOSPHINE (PH3) IS A GAS NECESSARY FOR MAKING COMPOUND SEMICONDUCTORS SUCH AS INP, INAS(1-X)PX, GAP, AND GAAS(1-X)PX AS WELL AS A DOPANT SOURCE FOR SILICON. IT IS A VERY TOXIC GAS WITH A TLV OF 0.3 PPM. NEW REGULATIONS MAKE THE TRANSPORT, STORAGE, AND HANDLING OF COMPRESSED GAS CYLINDERS OF PHOSPHINE INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT. TO AVOID THESE PROBLEMS, WE ARE DEVELOPING A COMPACT POINT OF USE PHOSPHIN ...

  6. Atomic Layer Epitaxy of GaN in a Multi-Wafer Rotating Disc Reactor

    SBC: EMCORE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    GaN and other III-V nitrides can be used for fabricating visible/UV optoelectronic devices. Sequential exposure of reactants using a commercial microwave Plasma Enhanced Atomic Layer Epitaxy reactor is proposed to grow high quality GaN films. The technique allows two dimensional layer-by-layer growth which reduces nitrogen vacancies commonly observed in the GaN films. PE-ALE also allows deposition ...

  7. Capillary Discharge X-Ray Laser Driver

    SBC: Multilayer Optics And X-ray            Topic: N/A

    A compact x-ray laser driver with a high repetition rate is the subject of this phase I project. Most existing x-ray laser drivers are huge (1000s of square feet of floor space), expensive ($10,000,000+), have a low repetition rate (1/hr), are complex and require several PhDs to keep them working. Thus applications of present x-ray lasers are limited. In contrast, the proposed laser will occupy on ...

  8. Broad Bandwidth Beam Benders and Short Focal Length Aperture Optics

    SBC: PHYSITRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Although there have been many advances in optics for low energy x-rays, (

  9. Micro Disk Systems for Inertial Sensing and Optical Beam Control

    SBC: STERLING RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Sarcos is currently developing a technology that can lead to low-cost millimeter-scale gyroscopes, multi axis inertial sensors, and very compact laser scanning devices. This technology, called Micro Disk Systems (MDS), is based on levitating a small disk above a VLSI substrate using electrostatic fields. AC stabilization of the fields ensures that the disk position remains suitable, and field-base ...

  10. Avalanche Photodiode for the 1.5-2.2 Micron Spectrum

    SBC: Sensors Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sensors Unlimited will develop an "amplifier" device for near-infrared (1.5-2.1 micron) light signals. "APDs" operate by accelerating electrons (generated by incoming light signals) via a high electric field (voltage) and crashing them into the semiconductor crystal, thereby releasing additional electrons which in turn get accelerated and generate even more electrons. This "avalanche" or "multipli ...
