  1. Embedded Sensors via Laser Engineered Net Shaping

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Optomec Design Company proposes to use Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENSTM), a Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (RP&M) technology currently under development at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), as a new method for integrating instrumentation (e.g., embedded sensors) into metal structural components. SNL has demonstrated the ability of the LENSTM technology to produce near net shape stainles ...

  2. Solid-State Spray Forming of Near-Net-Shape Structural Materials


    The objective of this research is to demonstrate the feasibility of spray forming aluminum Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) in the solid-state physical form as a light weight structural material. It is anticipated that this innovative manufacturing process will provide opportunities to fabricate near-net-shape spacecraft and interceptor structures with unique material properties. The process called S ...

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ionwerks has begun an internally funded project to design and manufacture an MBE growth chamber specifically designed and optimized for wide bandgap nitrides (compatible with Si/Ge growth also). This chamber will include two proprietary growth techniques which we have found to be crucial for formation of cBN thin films. Design and construction of this chamber is underway. We will use this equipmen ...

  5. Advanced Metal Powder Manufacture for MLCC Applications

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

    Sensors, capacitors, and conducting features such as resistors and capacitors on circuit boards are produced from metal and ceramic powders 1-12 These powders are manufactured by liquid phase precipitation routes which often start with reduction of metal salts or by solid-state routes where solid reactants are mixed, heated and then milled. The solid-state processing is generally repeated several ...

  6. Ultra Low-Loss Optoelectronic Packaging

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

    Conventional optoelectronic packaging technologies failed to provide low-loss coupling among various optoelectronic devices that are pivotal for BMDO-mission-related tasks. To bridge different effective apertures of various optoelectronic devices are the major bottleneck needs to be overcome. Radiant Research, Inc., proposes a drastically new idea to solve this problem by introducing a mode-matche ...

  7. Domain-Inverted Electrooptic Polymers

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

    Conventional electrooptic materials failed to provide a polarization-insensitive switch unless an exotic electrode structure is employed. Such a drawback prohibits system insertion of electrooptic devices into an array of optical interconnection network. Radiant Research, Inc., proposes a novel electrooptic polymer-based domain inverted waveguide structure to eliminate such a bottleneck. A 2x2 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Dispersion-Enhanced Multiplexed Photopolymer Graft for Multiwavelength Distributed Optical Interconnection Networks

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

    To further enhance the bandwidth promised by optics, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) scheme is becoming one of the major thrusts in photonics research. Most of the WDMs demonstrated are made out of glass and III-V compound semiconductor. The non-multiplexibility and the small index modulation of these inorganic materials result in severe restrictions that make WDM systems incapable of handl ...

  10. Silicon Carbide Using a Pulsed Seeded Supersonic Molecular Beam

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Silicon and gallium arsenide cannot meet some of the power, frequency, temperature and speed requirements of the next generation of electronic devices. Therefore, alternative semiconductor materials for electronic devices must be developed. Silicon carbide has many required properties such as wide bandgap, high breakdown field, high electron saturation velocity, and physical strength making it at ...
