  1. Nitride, Carbide and Non-Oxide In Situ Coatings Using RECVD,A New CVD Method

    SBC: CCVD, Inc dba MicroCoating Technologies (MCT)            Topic: N/A

    Currently, thermal spray (flame and plasma spray) is the only single step method of applying most metal and non-oxide ceramic coatings to large objects. These coatings are usually of a low quality, and thin films cannot be applied. An in situ deposition technique that inexpensively and easily applies nitrides, carbides and other non-oxide thin or thick films in an environmentally friendly manner i ...

  2. Production Friendly GaN Coatings Using RECVD, a New CVD Method

    SBC: CCVD, Inc dba MicroCoating Technologies (MCT)            Topic: N/A

    Currently vacuum based methods of PVD and CVD are the only processes for forming GaN thin films and coatings. These methods are usually expensive and are not applied in a production friendly manner. An atmospheric deposition technique that inexpensively and easily applies GaN thin or thick films in an environmentally friendly manner is a priority for any number of DOD and commercial applications. ...

  3. Powder Synthesis and Bulk Crystal Growth of Gallium Nitride

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The primary goal of Phase I work is to demonstrate the feasibility of synthesizing gallium nitride (GaN) powder. Secondarily, this powder will be used to grow high-purity single crystals of GaN from a liquid GaN phase. This would be accomplished using a proprietary variation of the skull melting technique. Since GaN demonstrates peritectic-type decomposition at atmospheric pressure, the entire sku ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Doping of SiC Using Seeded Supersonic Beams

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

    Controlled doping of silicon carbide (SiC) during epitaxial growth remains a significant problem due to the amphoteric nature of many dopants and competition for active sites between the dopants, silicon and carbon atoms. Currently, the most promising avenue for controlled doping of SiC is a process called site competition epitaxy which is a technique based on adjusting the SitC ratio within the g ...

  10. Development of Safe, Effective Difluoramination Reagents

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: N/A

    Rocket motors that develop greater thrust with lower weight and volume require-ments are an ever present goal of the BMDO. One method of providing this is through formulation of higher energy propellant mixtures. TPL proposes to develop a new method of effectively producing new high perfor-mance propellant constituents for launch, orbit-orbit transfer and station keeping propulsion systems. The p ...
