  2. 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 ...

  3. Ultrahigh Quality, Single-Crystal Bulk Silicon Carbide


    Silicon carbide materials will revolutionize semiconductor devices for military and commercial markets. The material's wide bandgap, high electric field breakdown, high thermal conductivity give SiC capabilities that far exceed those of silicon or gallium arsenide. Despite significant progress in silicon carbide development, fundamental defects--most prominently micropipes--persist. If SiC is to s ...

  4. Ultrafine SiC for Optical Mirrors

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SiC has exceptionally high thermal conductivity and low linear expansion coefficient to resist thermal distortion, high elastic modulus to resist pressure and bowing distortion. It is lightweight and wear resistant. It also has excellent corrosion resistance and outstanding load bearing characteristics at elevated temperatures. Its hardness is only surpassed by diamond, CBN and boron carbide. As ...

  5. Ultrafine HfC/TaC for Rocket Thrusters

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Liquid rocket engine performance can be dramatically improved by increasing the wall temperatures for operation concurrent with a reduction in the component weight. The bipropellant fuel combustion temperatures are between 3000 "approx" 3500 C. The conventional thrusters and exit nozzles made of niobium alloys have a maximum operating temperature limit of 1600 C. A regenerative cooling technolo ...

  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. Type-II Quantum Cascade Lasers for 8-12 Micron IR Sources

    SBC: Qet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the proposed research, we will investigate a new class of long wavelength-IR (8-12 um) lasers which was first suggested by the PI in 1994. These lasers are based on cascaded type-II quantum wells. They maintain the electron recycling advantage of the recently reported quantum cascade laser, while circumvent its limitations. Not only can a population inversion be easily created with a nearly 100 ...

  8. Solid State Piezoelectric Flexure Mechanism for Vibration Attenuation/Isolation

    SBC: Garman Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort focuses on the need for innovative, space realizable, self-contained solid state flexure mechanism for vibration attenuation/isolation. The proposed mechanism is a sealed linear actuator capable of high bandwidth (0-1 kHz) control. A design feasibility study will be performed on the use of piezoelectrics in an innovative flexure mechanism to provide robust vibration attenuation ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Sensors-Adaptive Beam Expander

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and fabricate an adaptive beam expander that can be switched between two magnifications. Specifically, the beam expander provides diffraction-limited performance for laser radar beams with diameters of 1 mm and 3 mm. The adaptive beam expander is lightweight, and it has no moving parts. Because the beam expander is an afocal system, it operates on both outgoing and incoming be ...
