  2. Ultrahigh Quality, Single-Crystal Bulk Silicon Carbide

    SBC: INTRINSIC SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: N/A

    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 ...

  3. Optimal SiC Source Powder for Bulk SiC Growth

    SBC: INTRINSIC SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The properties of single-crystal silicon carbide are such that electronics devices from this material have demonstrated remarkable performance characteristics. Despite the material's promise, the material has not yet found acceptance in mainstream device markets because of the material's high cost, among other reasons. This Phase I SBIR proposes an SiC source powder with unique properties which wi ...

  4. Novel Technology for Electronic Multilayer Devices

    SBC: Sumi Tech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel technological approach was recently devised by Sumi Tech engineers to fabricate multilayer electronic components, which enables the manufacture of devices with very high volumetric efficiency and reliability. Inexpensive electrode materials such as copper, or aluminum are potential candidates, since the process takes place at relatively low ambient temperature (e.g., less than 400 C), thus ...

  5. Microchannel Plate Imaging Neutron Detector

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    One highly desired improvement for neutron sensing is an imaging neutron detector with high two-dimensional spatial resolution and a large detector area. At present, achievable real-time neutron imaging detector resolution is only about 1 mm. The innovation proposed is to adapt for neutron imaging the high spatial resolution Microchannel Plate (MCP) detector technology so widely used for detecting ...

  6. MOCVD Growth of Epitaxial GaN on Lattice-Matched Substrates

    SBC: NZ APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The III-V nitride semiconductor family affords many unique properties which make these materials attractive candidates for producing electronic and optoelectronic devices. Much progress has been made in epitaxial thin film growth of nitrides using metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) and molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) during the last decade. These efforts are hindered by the lack of lattic ...

  7. A Compact, Solid State UV Laser

    SBC: CORETEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A compact, high power pulse UV laser would find many immediate applications in a variety of fields including bio-sensing. high-density data storage, printing, photolithography, remote sensing and detection of explosive materials. In response to this need, CoreTek, Inc. proposes to develop and commercialize a compact, diode-pumped, micro-cavity UV laser to generate an optical pulse train of sub-nan ...

  8. Monolithic Lossless Optical Switch for Plastic Fiber Systems

    SBC: Corpetek, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Photonic switches operating at wavelengths compatible with low-cost plastic fiber systems can enable the implementation of such systems for a wide variety of applications ranging from industrial machine control and local area networks to military applications such as phased array antennas. While recent advances in plastic fibers have led to the development of high speed fibers and efficient detect ...

  9. Tunable Laser with Wide Tuning Range for Plastic Fiber Systems

    SBC: Corpetek, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Plastic Optical Fiber systems provide significantly lower costs, and complexity compared to glass optical fiber systems and are suitable for future short haul communication needs. While Silicon photodiodes provide excellent receiving capabilities there is no efficient tunable laser source for these wavelengths. CoreTek proposes the development of a low cost, manufacturable, widely tunable laser di ...

  10. Spatial Modulation

    SBC: RPU TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    In a number of IR target-detection systems a small instantaneous field of view (IFOV) of the image sensor is required in order that the target be reliably detected against clutter. A modification (called Spatial Modulation) of the image sensor is proposed by which each IFOV sample or output pixel, is a measure -- not of the average of the scene intensity over the IFOV -- but of the high spatial-fr ...
